With more than 5000 products in the Fermob range when you count all the possible colours, we’re unable to hold everything in stock and consequently Fermob lead times can be challenging. And whilst we do keep some stock, choosing the right colours from the 24 available in the right sizes, mean we usually order furniture as customers request it.

And Fermob also try to hold stock ready at the factory, but they face the same challenges in knowing what is going to be popular at any time, so usually lead times can be around 4 to 6 weeks, plus shipping time.

Update on Fermob lead times for Spring/Summer 2022

The problems that faced production of Fermob products last year have not eased in 2022 we’re afraid. Raw material and fuel costs continue to rise and there still some safety related constraints around COVID in the factory.

This means that lead times can still be high. Fermob are quoting lead times as follows:

  • Products in stock at the factory. Lead times are limited only by shipping and subject to us having enough orders together to put together an order.
  • Standard lead time for products that must be made to order – it around 12 to 16 weeks plus shipping time from France to the UK.
  • Long lead times – some items are on even longer lead times. These are the ones that are suspended from production until September at least.

We can always check if we have stock or Fermob are holding stock at their factory in Thoissey. In addition we can find out what the lead time is if it is not already manufactured.

So if you have any queries, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do to help.
