Carcase lead times / Covid

Oct 10, 2020
  • We are living in strange times.
  • An unexpected consequence of the Covid situation is that demand for Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms has surged. People are working from home, not taking holidays away and so home improvement has become the focus of investment for many people.
  • Egger is the biggest supplier of MFC in Europe and demand for their product is outstripping their ability to supply by around 40%. This situation is Europe wide and is not just affecting the UK.
  • This situation is likely to prevail well into the early part of 2021.
  • WJS carcases are made to order usually on a lead-time of 14 working days. This current situation will affect our ability to maintain this service.
  • As a consequence we have to advise that only our core Colours will be available on a extended lead time 18 - 21 days.
  • Core colours are :
  • Alabaster Egger U104
  • Dust Grey Egger U732
  • Light Grey Egger U708
  • Mussel Egger U100
  • Stone Egger U727
  • White Egger W980
  • Cashmere Egger U702
  • Davenport Egger H3368

  • All other colours will be on a 35 day lead time and any orders for carcases placed after 30th October will not be delivered until January 2021. There may be some exceptions to this but every order will have to be assessed on a job by job basis.
  • Therefore customers are advised to ensure that any orders for carcases are placed as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
