    Has anyone had any recent communication with either of these companies?

    Our recent phone calls and emails have gone unanswered.

    I've had e-mail contact and snail-mail brouchure with/from Tor Design in the last month (sorry deleted the e-mail so can't be more precise) , although I did have to chase up an earlier e-mail! If your talking more recent than this sorry I can't help!

    We placed an order with Handleys a few months ago for some extra jackets and haven't heard anything from them. Normally they turn these around in about 6 weeks.

    From past experience the factory shuts down about this time of year.

    We ordered and paid for new band ties 2 weeks after this years Butlins and we have still not received them!!!

    They aren't been very smart with communication either which is begining to get rather ****!!!

    I have been informed that they close down for 5 weeks, we were promised our delivery last friday and it still hasn't come, not a great way to run a business. How can you close a factory down for the summer when there are orders outstanding.

    Interesting that nobody from Handley has posted on here to assure us that they are indeed still trading.
    I really can't believe that they would leave phones ringing and emails unanswered if they were still looking for business !!

    its becoming a bit of a joke!!

    If they can't supply lets have our money back and we shall go else where. We were hoping to be going to the finals with new uniform but don't look like we shall :(

    Maybe our last band sponsor's would be interested in helping us out with this problem ;)

    They did, but it was a good few years ago now.
