Reserve/Hold Policy

Reserve/Hold Policy

As the global demand for high quality BSA increases, the need to more efficiently manage our operations and inventory becomes a higher priority. In an effort to improve both our response time and product availability, we are implementing a Reserve/Hold policy effective as of 7 June 2021. For those customers who need to pre-test and reserve specific lots, we are implementing this policy to provide adequate time for completion of acceptance testing while providing longer term reserve and storage services for those customers who need it at a reasonable cost.

NOTE: Please advise all end-users of this policy.

We appreciate your business and the opportunity to be a valued part of your work.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
