I think it’s fair to say WE ARE BACK and this months news update feels like the ideal time to say thank you to each and every one of you, for your patience and support throughout the past 3 months.
This business literally means everything to me and after all the uncertainty I couldn’t be happier, back doing what I love, with Jack and John... what an awesome team I have here, I doff my hat (sorry I don’t have a hat) to the beautiful future.
With regards to current lead times:
As a result of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation Optimise HQ reopened on Tuesday 2nd June and production reopening on Monday 8th June.
Annoyingly, we are unable to give accurate lead time estimates at this moment in time - following our closed period we have the biggest backlog of orders that we have ever had and we don’t really know how long it will take to get everything back to normal (obviously like everyone else, we’ve never been in this situation before). We believe our lead times are currently between 6 and 9 weeks, but to be honest that is a bit of a guess - it might be less, it might be more.
If you are are willing and/or able to wait, please be rest assured that we will manufacture & dispatch your order as soon as we can.
With regards to our current schedule of bespoke work, first available start dates (for any bespoke order) are now around the middle of October. If you are looking to book any bespoke work in, we recommend getting in touch ASAP - we don’t want anyone to miss out on those all important winter project time slots.
As before (and as I have already mentioned), I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and support as we all deal with this unprecedented situation.
It’s great to be back and it’s great to be looking ahead to a positive future.
Have a great day.
Andy & the Optimise Automotive team
