July 2015 Newsletter - Edition 94

Betta Blinds and Awnings are Expanding and Moving into bigger premises

moving

Moving commences from Friday 3rd July.

The factory will be operating out of both the new and old premises during a transition period of approximately a week.

For local customers you will receive a notice advising when pick ups are from the new premises (the office and pick up area are accessed via the road behind the buidings).

Please note there may be some distruption to our production schedule, however we are endeavouring to avoid any blow out in our normal lead times.  

We ask for your patience during this transition period and suggest adding a couple of extra days to your normal notification of lead times, just in case.  

Click here for Google map of precinct which shows our new location.

The office will remain at Shop 15 until Friday 9th July. The new premises are in the same precinct and the new address will be Shop 6, Mammoth Business Precinct, 7172 Bruce Highway, Forest Glen 4556. 

PRICE LIST UPDATE - CHANGES TO IN HOUSE FABRIC BLINDS

As mentioned in the June Newsletter, there has been another price increase from Shaw Australia, making the total increase this year 14%, however we have not passed the full increase on to our customers.  

There have been some price increases to the In House collection fabrics and these have been held over and will now be effective from 1st August.  

Due to re-costing all fabrics in our collection you will find that some prices in price categories, and some fabrics within the fabric collection, have come down in price.  

Please note fabrics have changed category in the In House Roller Blinds and Panel & Roman Blinds in the Fabric Collection.

price increase 260x195IN HOUSE ROLLER BLINDS Price Increases and Decreases,

Category B - Price Increase 1% 
Category C - Price Increase 2%

Some other fabrics have changed categories as well (some have gone up and some have come down). Example: Vibe Metallic, Zaru Decorate Screen, and Berkley Translucent, have come down a category, Icon has gone up one category etc. This is due to all suppliers increasing their prices, but by different percentages.

We made minimum price changes to the Builders Range products, effective 1st July 2015.

Fresco+ fabric was missing from all of the roller books and from all the roller update packs. These updates will have to be added at a later stage as the first shipment of the new wider width isn’t due to arrive until mid-August.
