    That must be an old magazine, Island Plastics became Romahome Ltd., years ago.

    Sorry couldn't resist that one, thanks for passing that information on.

      This is the obverse of "just in time" supply, and in my view, having done it, the practice is questionable.

      If I were going into business again I would aim at delivery from stock, or at least from vessels under construction. In my view the customer should be able to see the actual article before he or she buys. A small deposit (berth reservation in marine terms) is legitimate.

      Building to order gives the builder a MUCH healthier cash flow, but the practice can be abused.

        Recession reaction, does improve cash flow but reduces product availability to the customer.

        I can't see the few dealers they have increasing their stockholding so it looks like the downhill spiral to oblivion.
