CMYUK has increased stocks of Pongs textiles in all its UK warehouse locations as part of efforts to offer ‘full contingency support to the UK and Irish digital wide-format printing industries.’

In the light of the Coronavirus outbreak that is impacting the supply of goods around the world, CMYUK says customers can be ‘reassured’ that all Pongs best selling products will be in plentiful supply both now and in the foreseeable future. The company has brought forward a buffer to handle increased demand from new customers who are unable to receive materials from their usual suppliers due to delays in the Chinese supply chain.

‘We’ve had several customers contact us in panic but because of our established European supply chain, clients can be confident in consistent, continuous availability of Pongs materials. Given what we know about the Chinese ordering, manufacturing and fulfillment cycles, we anticipate the shortage of materials in the UK will start to manifest by April/May and we will be ready,’ said Robin East, marketing director, CMYUK. ‘The Coronavirus is disrupting industries across the world.  All of us hope that it can be contained, a vaccine developed plus the illness and death to stop.’

Bernd Lautenbach, CEO at Pongs added, ‘Our company is ideally equipped to deliver when demand increases due to the collapse of competitors’ existing supply chains. Customers can expect the usual Pongs  premium quality materials that are made in Germany.’
