On Time and In Full

We do just about anything to meet the delivery deadlines for our customers.

I've heard stories from other suppliers that they've stayed up all night repacking bags, driven to the ends of the earth to deliver, re-shuffled their own priorities to go out to make a delivery.

Yes - we'll do that too; but it is very rarely needed.

It's our partnerships, processes and systems that help us deliver on time and in full.

Considering we've been making bags since 1992, we're doing something right.

We've got a supplier network that is honed.  Each partner is an expert in their area and pull it all together for you.

Our manufacturing partners are superb, shipping and freight contractors, warehouse staff and delivery drivers are all part of the machine.

Delivery on time and in full.

Our aim is 100%.

Cotton Pricing Update

Not too long ago (March, 2011) Cotton Pricing went crazy and - at that time - was showing no signs of cooling off.

But, as we can see with hindsight it was a classic supply and demand bubble at the time.  Poor returns for producers meant lower production and as such pushed prices up.

Cotton prices have normalised to a sustainable level for consumers and have stayed there for some time.

At present, there's nothing in the immediate future that will impact pricing.

However, the longer term story is quite different and pressures will come from a number of areas :

  • changing attitudes by consumers towards single use plastic bags
  • reductions on arable land
  • competition from other crops
  • specific climate events
  • overall climate change (sea levels, drought/flood)
I'd say that cotton pricing will be about $145.00 by June 2019.
