After their factory fire, Hanwei is now back in production in their brand new updated factory. We are now expecting our first shipment of Hanwei items very shortly. We have had from Hanwei the new price listing for their items and these price changes have been implemented across our listings.
The cost to us, the trader, has had some significant increases from Hanwei, but we have softened this increase to our customers by offering the best rates we can give. We have also been informed by Hanwei that many items across the range have now been discontinued. There has however been several new and exciting items added to the range. If you need any assistance regarding Hanwei items please do not hesistate to contact us.
Hanwei are now back in production in their new factory, and we are expecting our long awaited delivery in mid September. Prices have increased from Hanwei on many items across the range, but until we have full confirmation on the increases the exact amount is as yet unkown We are taking back orders on many Hanwei items now but the listed price may be subject to a slight change upon receipt of the new stock.
Thank you for your patience through this period of Hanwei difficulty
