James Hardie Range & Service Updates – July 2021

24 October 2022

Please find below an update from James Hardie – July 2021:

A message from James Hardie

In a time of unprecedented demand for building products both globally and locally, James Hardie has been making significant efforts to ensure the continuity of supply of our products to our customers.

With the forecast peak demand still in front of us we have identified some opportunities to minimise potential stock shortages by updating our service offer and rationalising our vast range of fibre cement products.

This will provide the opportunity to maximise production capacity on higher demand products by James Hardie and better service market needs.

It’s important you take the time to read through the following changes to understand how they may affect your business.

New Service Offer

In order to provide our distributors with improved reliability and accuracy of supply times, we’re shifting to a new service model. This new model effectively results in supply lead times to our distributors approximating a 2 (Category A) and 4 (Category B) week lead time, depending on the product.

What does this mean for you? To minimise disruption, we suggest you provide forward orders reflective of these target lead times to your supplier of Hardie™ materials wherever possible.
