Shipping Update: Our 1-1/4" Ceramic Magnets are in one of those containers. September 14 2016

Shipping Containers

As button makers we may not have heard of Hanjin. Hanjin is one of the worlds largest container shipping lines. Hanjin has recently declared bankruptcy and its container ships are stuck in ports around the world.

So what has this got to do with me?  Well unfortunately our skids of ceramic magnets are stuck on the ship in Port Rupert!  They will not be unloaded because the shipping company owes the Port money for docking fees.

Articles yesterday in the media say new money for Hanjin has been made available so cargo will be moving again soon. But they cannot say when and nor can we.

This is a good example of how everything is interconnected in our world today.  A Bankruptcy in Korea means the event in Jasper does not have magnets. For our customers please contact us directly and we can find a substitution or a solution. Hopefully the cargo may be flowing in a couple of weeks but it may take longer.
