Blackchrome Unaffected by China Delays
We are aware of the concerns surrounding supply delays due to not only the annual Chinese New Year celebrations but also the coronavirus outbreak.
We would like to reassure you that Blackchrome is unaffected by any current supply issues, as our factory is located in Sri Lanka (all our shipments come to our Adelaide warehouse via Singapore).
Why are there delays?
In the sportswear Industry, Chinese New Year has a huge impact on production, as it involves the closing of factory doors for a month, while people celebrate the holiday. This forces lengthy production delays for those who order out of China. Due to the coronavirus, the current Chinese New Year holiday period has been further extended in China, in an effort to keep people at home and reduce the spreading of the virus.
Many sportswear companies manufacture their garments in China and therefore may be affected by the coronavirus outbreak as factories and their suppliers are closed in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.
Should I be worried about my order?
If you have a current order with Blackchrome, there is no need to be concerned about any delays. However, If you have placed an order with another manufacturer, check with them as to whether supply will be affected. If there are any issues or you have concerns about your order then we encourage you to get in touch with our team to see how we can help.
