I am writing to inform you that following in depth business reviews, it is with regret that the Directors of Canford Audio Plc have decided that the activities of our Ash Distribution Business Unit no longer fit within the core business strategy of the company. For this reason, Ash Distribution will cease operations on Wednesday 28th February 2018.
All resources currently employed within the Ash Distribution Business Unit will be transferred into the main Canford business allowing greater focus on growing our core business in the broadcast and audio visual marketplaces.
I wish to emphasise that all warranties and contractual obligations will be honoured by Canford Audio Plc and that although telephone sales will cease on 28th February 2018, Customer Services will continue to provide after-sales support. The Ash website will remain open for some time after 28th February to process orders in the “Ash Web-Only Closing Down Sale”, until all stocks are cleared.
This clearance sale will include “online exclusives” so we would hope you take advantage and secure bargains whilst stocks last. This really is an “Everything Must Go” sale. As you are an existing customer, your account facilities will remain open, and you will be transferred over to Canford’s product range, with the same credit terms that are currently in place.
With respect to our Trade Counter and Local Delivery service the following will apply:
Twice Weekly Deliveries: Last delivery Friday 10th February. From Monday 12th February a weekly delivery to customers North of the Tyne will take place on Tuesdays only and South of the Tyne Wednesdays only.
Our Trade Counter will operate 9.00am until 5.15pm Monday to Friday until Wednesday 28th February. From Thursday 1st March it will offer Canford’s normal standard “click and collect” service for orders placed in advance.
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for your loyal custom in the past and sincerely hope you will continue to trade with Canford for many years to come.
Chief Executive Officer
Canford Audio PLC
