Typically our production times are 4-8 weeks. This will also depend on first time orders and the availability of raw materials.
How will we know what stage our Project is currently at?
All clients are allocated a Project Manager who acts as a single point of contact / interface. We recognise that our clients are busy professionals and it would be unprofessional of us to expect the client to have to contact numerous different individuals within our organisation to get project updates. We find that by having one central interface it helps insure the efficient smooth running of a project.
What happens if my Project Manager is away?
Of course from time to time your Project Manager may be out of the office or on holiday. We always allocate a deputy Project Manager as well from the start of the project who can handle enquiries in the absence of your primary Project Manger.
