CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
Business as usual. TEP Technica continues to run 100% of our services as normal and will do so throughout the pandemic period.
However please be patient, as it may sometimes take a little longer to respond to enquiries. This is because we are restricting the number of staff, we have working onsite to maintain social distancing to protect our staff and visitors. Staff numbers will only be increased when it is considered safe to do so.
We are accepting visitors, but you must book in advance of arrival, and strictly adhere to the clearly displayed signs, and to social distancing instructions from the onsite team.
Many thanks for your understanding and support.
Due to the current uncertainty surrounding the issue of Brexit, we must inform you that, if for any reason our costs have substantially increased between the time of accepting your order and the time when we are due to deliver it, we reserve the right to withhold the order until a new price is agreed by the Buyer in writing. This does not affect your right to cancel the order, unless the goods have been produced exclusively for you.
Please note that quoted lead times may vary or possibly be extended as a result of Brexit.
All quoted prices, in whichever form, do not include any potential import duties which may be applied post Brexit.
Due to current market volatility, unless specified otherwise, all quoted prices, in whichever form, are valid for a maximum of 7 working days from receipt.
