IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING STIHL PRODUCT
We have had a notice from Stihl regarding the delays in getting new product to us. This is going to be an ongoing issue for a while. We are taking orders from our customers and keeping a record of who wants what, we will then contact you as soon as that product becomes available. Here is the official statement from Stihl.
Dear STIHL Approved Dealer,
As we communicated in our recent email, STIHL GB is experiencing significant delays to inbound product shipments. Containers coming from USA and China are being delayed due to global capacity constraints and shipments from Europe are being affected by customs bottlenecks.
We’re doing our absolute best to minimise disruption to you. However, there will be delays and we wanted to make you aware of this at the earliest opportunity.
Unfortunately, the situation is being further compounded by the unprecedented global demand for STIHL products. Our factories have responded by operating around the clock but it will still be some time before the supply situation completely stabilises.
To help manage demand, we have also taken the decision to postpone some elements of our spring marketing campaign until later in the year.
We are currently working with our suppliers around the world to assess the full impact of these delays and we’ll keep you regularly updated via status reports. Please do take the time to check these updates before calling or emailing our Customer Support team.
The STIHL Team
