CTfanman discusses the coming Chinese New Year and factory closings – 2015/2016.
The holidays are fast approaching and we wanted to make sure any material and/or delivery “surprises” are held to a minimum! Chinese New Year is right around the corner and as we all know, these holidays can have a large impact on manufacturing in China and Taiwan, which draws-out lead times. Our latest schedule shows the YEN SUN factories will be closed from February 5th , 2016 to February 14th, 2016.
As we get closer to years end, lead times will continue to stretch out and it is very important to plan your inventory needs with this in mind. YS Tech USA is traditionally closed between Christmas and the New Year holiday so all orders and shipments out of California need to be scheduled prior to this. YS Tech USA’s last shipping day of 2015 is December 18th! And will resume shipments on January 4th, 2016.
Our current lead times are 10 – 12 weeks by ocean FOB CA and 8 – 10 weeks FCA Hong Kong. These lead times tend to increase after CNY and will most likely reach 12 – 14 weeks FOB CA and FCA Hong Kong remaining the same. As always, we are doing all we can to secure materials so as to make this transition as smooth as possible.
As you experienced sales people know, this happens every year and should not be a surprise. If you have questions about blanket orders, scheduling or any other material or delivery issues, be sure to call me as soon as possible.
We at YS Tech USA thank all of our dedicated sales professionals for another year of outstanding performance and loyalty to our cooling fan, thermal solution and extrusion products.
