New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is the bomb! She has taken the virus by the horns and locked the gate. New Zealand is in lockdown for four weeks as of 25 March 2020. Apart from some essential services, all business, including ours, will be closed for four weeks.
Please be assured your sawmill deposits, your sawmills-in-progress, and any parts you may have paid for, are safe and have been set aside. Our admin and sales staff will continue to work from home, but our factory must take a short break. We will continue to take sawmill orders and deposits, and place our own orders with our suppliers (some suppliers remain open for business). We will recommence manufacturing of your orders the second our factory is allowed to reopen.
If you’d like to order spare parts, please email Rachel at email@example.com
Our government has been wonderful in providing wages subsidies to employees during this time, and banks are freezing principal repayments of mortgages. We will get through this, and come out the other side stronger and healthier as a nation, and as a world.
Please take this time to look after your families and loved ones, stay home if you can, and wash Wash WASH your hands!
