Subject: Dadant selling 4.9 foundation

Greetings -

I just got the word from Dadant that a decision was made this afternoon to start producing and selling 4.9mm foundation. They are now accepting orders and you can expect a 4-6 week delivery time for initial start up. Once the line is rolling you can expect normal turnover times.

They are offering it in 8-1/2" size (deep), but I understand they will consider custom sizes. It will be "Medium Brood Style", wax, no plastic. They will accept wax for foundation (working rates) and also manufacture ones own wax into foundation. (minimum may be required)

They will accept orders by phone, email, signed fax or snail mail. I trust plenty of people will start working with this foundation. It will be great to see now how this works in many different areas.

Glad to pass this on and I want to thank Dadant.
