2018-21 Collection – Pricelist January 2018 B

50 Shades of Grey (more than). We now have supplies of literature for the 2018-21 collection announced @ Stuttgart in February. New colours and new roll widths coming on-line now, speed of introduction increasing from September.

Pricelist January 2018 has been amended to (January 2018 B) to include these new roll widths (and correct one error, single roll price Sv5 3.20)

Plusses:  Over 200 different specifications now @ 3.0m wide or greater, all colours of Satine 5500 now available @ 2.85, incl. 4 RAL ‘colours’, NEW 1% openness external screen fabric, the Satine 5501

Pitfalls: pretty colours (reds, blues, yellows etc.) going from the M-Screen range, also going, the colour 20 (alabaster) as a 95 tex warp colour, so, no M-Screen 2020 Alabaster (linen). Kibo 8500 loses both 2020 and 3001 (Charcoal grey).

Changes to range, fabric by fabric:

We will be starting to distribute the new collection binders over the next few weeks, let us know your requirements and let us know which Interior Designers and Architects justify their own set.

Lean Manufacturing’

‘Lean’ Manufacturing Software Program Explanation.  In France the Mermet production facility has started to utilise a ‘Lean’ production forecasting system. Every significant enquiry received for fabric is entered into the system. The objective being that they ‘see into the future’, predicting bottlenecks, shortages of capacity, etc. and avoiding them. In this respect any significant (10+ rolls/1,000 msq) enquiry goes into the system –with as much of the following information as is available:

Fabric type/colour/roll width / Quantity /Date of specification of the fabric /Estimated time for decision / Estimated time for order / Timescale, to required delivery: Anything from 4 weeks to 1st half 2021, e.g. Q1 2019 / Probability: 10% (unlikely) – 90% (order rec’d but no measurements yet).

Every enquiry put into the system will be monitored, so expect our follow up phone calls


New fabric announcement. September 15th, watch out for the announcement of a major new fabric. See it @ BBSA Showcase Exhibition Coventry October 21st-23rd.
