By participating in the Stock Holding Service your lead time can be reduce by the first four stages (approx 110 days).

The Stock Holding Service is available to retail brands and their spinners who are willing to establish NewMerino as a key partner in their supply chain and who will work closely with us to provide a forecast of their future requirements along with a level of commitment.

  • tops specification
  • indication of likely volumes
  • timing of your program requirements.

We will then be in a position to hold inventory of the types and volumes you will require.
