Covid 19 CanSave Operational Update for March 25 2020

Dear Valued Partners,

Further to the Ontario Government’s announcement to close all non-essential businesses, Can Save is recognized as an essential supply source per the government’s listing and will remain open and operating.

At this time, we wanted to give you another operational update on the current state of Can Save, Cabinetsmith, and Doorsmith operations.

Cabinetsmith Production:

• Select Series lead times are moving from 2 to 3 weeks
• Impressions Kitchens lead times are moving from 3 to 5 weeks (see https://cabinetsmith.ca/lead-times-for-new-orders/ for all current lead times).
• Cabinetsmith is made of almost entirely Ontario inputs to manufacturing and input inventory is in good shape and suppliers remain open. Daily cabinet output is down slightly, but still operating.

Doorsmith Production:

• Interior door slab and exterior steel slab suppliers are on mandatory shut down in Quebec until April 14th due to Covid-19 and will affect Doorsmith lead times for new orders
• Interior door slabs and interior door systems new orders are moving to current lead time plus 4 weeks ( https://doorsmith.ca/lead-times-for-new-orders/ ).
• Interior door slabs current onhand inventory will be used to fill in house open orders first. If onhand inventory permits, some new orders may be shipped early.
• Exterior door order lead times will be normal except for doors requiring non stock door slabs or non stock glass from Novatech. Those orders will be current lead times for that type of door plus 4 weeks (https://doorsmith.ca/lead-times-for-new-orders/).
• Exterior door slab current onhand inventory should enable stock door lead times to remain as regular until our exterior slab supplier reopens.

CanSave Covid 19 Update

CanSave Covid-19 Operational Update

Dear Valued Partners,

As we are all aware, Covid-19 continues to have an evolving and dramatic impact on businesses and supply chains.

At Can Save, we are focused on the continued health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers as well as supporting our partners in the supply chain through this trying time.

To our partners, we wanted to give an operational update on the current state of Can Save, Cabinetsmith, and Doorsmith operations.

Production:

  • Cabinetsmith production lead times are normal with the exception of Impressions Kitchens lead times moving from 3 weeks to 4 weeks.  All other lead times are normal (see https://cabinetsmith.ca/lead-times-for-new-orders/for all current lead times).  Cabinetsmith is made of almost entirely Canadian inputs to manufacturing and we have been increasing inventories of inputs to limit disruptions to supply
  • Doorsmith production lead times are normal with the exception of interior doors.  Interior slab inventory is currently low and we are working with JELD-WEN, our Canadian supplier, to increase our slab inventory.  Until that time, all interior slab and system lead times will be increasing by 1 week (see https://doorsmith.ca/lead-times-for-new-orders/ for all current lead times)

Customer Service:

  • The wonderful Customer Service professionals you work with regularly have been moving offsite and working from home
