To achieve our best economies of scale in manufacturing we need orders to be over 250 metres (275 yards) in length. Savings we make on orders over 250 metres allow us to be much more efficient. We can pass much of these savings on to our customers to help us be more competitive.
Orders for a fabric under 250 metres (275 yards) length is considered a small order.
Price breaks are offered by John England for convenience. This allows customers to buy small quantities, to try out in their range, before bulk purchase. The minimum wholesale order is only £200.
John England are designers and manufacturers, not just wholesalers.
To achieve economies of scale orders must be over 250 metres (275 yards) in length. Savings made on orders over 250 metres allow greater efficiencies in weaving. We can pass these savings on to our customers to make us more competitive, and encourage larger orders.
An order for fabric under 250 metres (275 yards) length is considered a small order.
If you want the best prices please try to keep orders above 250 metres. Remember cutting to exact lengths is an extra cost, and leaves us with wasted short lengths. There are definite savings if customers take full rolls. This avoids cutting, secondary rolling costs, and leaving us with off-cuts.
John England understand that not all our customers require 250m + lengths of fabric. To help we have price breaks for small quantities under 250 metres in length.
The price breaks are as follows:
150m-250m, 100m-149m, 50m-99m, 13m-49m, 6m-12m. The minimum order is 6 metres.
For orders over 250 metres an up-to-date quotation will be given.
Business can be seasonal, and some times of the year the Company is less busy than others. If customers allow us to weave their order during these periods it will help us quote the best prices.
There is not much savings to be made after 1000m.
