Suez Canal Issue – March 2021

Metz only import ceramic tiles from Europe – predominantly from Italy and Germany.

All our supplier factories are continuing production as normal, with Covid protocols in place.

Shipping from Europe has been delayed by the blockage of the Suez Canal. The extent of delays will not become clear until the vessel is freed – but at this stage realistically a min 2 week delay is expected.

Metz has extensive quality European tile stocks already in Australia. We are well stocked for specialty slip resistant and architectural tiles, however if you have potential projects it would be prudent to talk to your local Metz representative as soon as possible to secure stocks.

Thanks to all for your ongoing support of Metz over what continues to be trying times.
