    Default Conid not taking orders...

    Until May 1st.... I guess the demand was too high. They also politely told anyone with open orders emails are going to be difficult to return.

    This has been brewing for the better part of 2019.

    The demand was simply too much for the firm, essentially a side gig, to keep up. Hopefully, they will build an operation that is better able to scale in future.

    The email from Conid indicated current orders for 253 Bulkfillers. They offer other models, too, but no mention of order numbers for non-Bulkfillers.

    It seems business is good at Conid and, to an extent, they've become collective victims of their own success. I wish them well.

    All Conids are bulkfillers*, so that is the total number of outstanding orders.

    Kingsize, Regular, Minimalistica, Slimline, Giraffe are the different models, but each uses the same filling system.

    Hi Conid friends!
    Good news :Conid twill restart accepting orders as from September 2020
    The Covid 19 pandemic has - and still is- seriously in Belgium which delayed the elimination of their backlog
    They have started production of the parts , assuring shorter delivery times in the future
    Keep you safe and healthy !.
    Best regards,
    Francis
