bringing in 2021 with Kitronik

We hope that you all had a good break over the Christmas and New Year period. Although it's been a challenging year, to say the least, the rest was welcome and we are raring to go. Although things aren't as we might wish they were, we are committed to continuing to meet your needs. We've got a sample of some new lines to tell you about, some new learning resources, and some information to share.

New Products From Kitronik:

There are so many new things to talk about that we've had to cherry pick just a small sample. We've been developing new lines, sourcing new products, and adding to our materials range. We also have a ton more lines waiting in the wings, but more on those later. Let's get to it!

Covid-19 V's Kitronik Service:

Covid information

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have striven to keep up our level of service to our customers. As we head into another lockdown the same is true. Whilst prioritising the safety of our customers and our staff we will continue to serve you as we always have.

The only perceptible change to our level of service will be that we will be unable to offer collections from Kitronik as a delivery option. This is in line with Government safety guidelines. We thank you for your understanding and we are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.



Kitronik Service And BREXIT:

brexit information

Keeping up with all things BREXIT is proving to be challenging for everyone. With that in mind, we have produced an article detailing all of the changes that this entails. We will also keep this document current, so do refer back to it. If you need further clarification, please contact our customer services team who will be happy to help.



New Line News: 

As was touched upon briefly earlier, we have a lot of new things coming through. Materials, sourced, and homegrown products are all queued up and waiting to land. Some of which we are really excited about and we know you will be too.  Make sure you don't miss out on things as soon as they land by signing up for our newsletter here.
