Easter Bank Holiday, Recent Developments

The East Bank Holiday is nearly upon us, we will be closed between Friday the 14th and Monday the 17th of April inclusive, though the website will still be taking orders over this period which will be processed upon our return. 

We have been incredibly busy over the last couple of months, developing several customer projects as well as new actuator and controller products which we hope to be revealing soon, watch this space!

Christmas Holidays

We will be closed between the 23rd of December and the 3rd of January for our Christmas and New Year break. During this period orders will still be accepted through the website but they may not be processed until the 3rd (there is a possibility that some may be processed on the 28th and 29th of December, but please do not rely on this). If you require delivery before Christmas please ensure you select an appropriate delivery method and get your order placed in time for dispatch before the 22nd; if you are unsure about which delivery methods are suitable for you then please contact us.

Some new products added to the website in the last month have included a DC motor/actuator PWM speed controller, a 24V to 12V 20A DC-DC converter, and a 24V 5A power supply (mains AC to DC adapter). As always if you have any product queries please get in touch.

Many Website and Delivery Changes

We have been busy working with to make a number of improvements to the website over the past few weeks. You can now search for a country name to find delivery methods, access delivery service information alongside the pricing (on basket and checkout pages), and also pay for your order faster than ever before with a secure card interface built into the checkout (allowing you to bypass the sometimes labyrinthine PayPal payment process). We will continue to make improvements to the website functionality alongside adding new products in the coming days.

Prices for next-day (after dispatch) UPS delivery have recently fallen, making it significantly cheaper to send bulky items within the UK just in time for the Christmas posting season.

As always if you have any product or website questions please do let us know.

Delivery Methods Added, New Products

We have been busy making many small changes to the website over the past couple of weeks. There are now two new delivery methods available, Royal Mail 2nd Class Recorded in the UK and Hermes International Economy to a range of European countries. Both services offer a cheaper way to send parcels of a range of different sizes.

New products recently added to the website include the GR-RK1 modular linear actuator, a 'Make to Extend' relay harness, and DC plug to screw terminal connectors.

We are also pleased to announce price drops for both the GLA-CU-X2 receiver unit, and 12V 20A power supply.

Website System Upgrades

The website has recently had an upgrade allowing for the the calculation of VAT rates based upon billing/shipping country. If you are ordering to a non-EU country VAT will be automatically removed from your order once you have selected your shipping country. If you are ordering on behalf of a VAT registered business in the EU you will now be offered the ability to enter your registration number at the checkout to remove VAT from your order.

We have added a number of new products, with more coming very soon. Please take a look in the Electrical and Actuator Accessories categories for the new items. 

New Products Coming Soon

We are back to normal service after a very busy period over the last week, online orders should take no more than one working day to process, with many smaller orders being sent the same day they are received.

On the horizon we have two new products, firstly an 8mm bracket perfect for use with the GLA1000 model of actuator, and secondly a brand new type of fully-adjustable linear actuator based around a rack-and-pinion drive mechanism. Watch this space for more information!
