Not sure, but speak to HansaFlex. They at least have (or had) a technical person who seemed to understand the questions I asked.

This is the second week they could not deliver an outstanding order to me, each time I call them they say they will find out what is going on and the just don't return calls :thumbdown:

Thank you very much for the info Peter :thumbup:

to Cedrik:

I think they are efficient.
I would say they had initially a little bit of spare capacity but the increased demand + the cold weather (with its reduced production output) brought them to a point were there is now more demand than what they can currently produce. :salute:

yeah, I think you are right. I know they are struggling to keep up with production, but no excuse not to call and say hey I can only supply "X" amount of diesel, or at least let him know what is going on. Luckily I haven't had any problem so far.
