We regret not being able to provide more notice, but have worked diligently with our supply chain to extend a short window of opportunity for you to order spares. We encourage you to consider this extension and order spares as desired for your equipment by December 5, 2018. Once December 5th has past, these items will not have guaranteed availability through the Lyle supply chain.
Please keep in mind that the controls systems these G&L components work with have been obsolete for many years. We are passing this notice on to you as an interim solution to ensure you are apprised of the situation with G&L. To ensure your equipment is current and well supported, it is heavily recommended that a complete controls upgrade is installed onto your equipment, avoiding the chance of extended periods of down-time in the future. For a current price and lead-time on a controls upgrade for your equipment, please contact our kits department at 989-435-7741, extension 2221.
If you have any questions, or would like to place an order for spare G&L components, please contact the Lyle Parts Department at 989-435-7741, extension 2248.
