UPDATE ON NBL SHIPPING STATUS:
NBL plans to complete two more shipments before the end of the calendar year, and those customers have been contacted.
Currently, NBL is seeking approval to allow for the packaging and transport of our back-ordered shipments. When that approval is received we will begin the process of clearing the back-ordered shipments. At this time, we expect to begin processing the back-ordered shipments in early January, proceeding through February and March. Those customers who have already submitted signed order forms will be contacted in December or January and advised of an approximate ship date.
At this time, NBL is NOT accepting new orders or issuing quotes. Once the backlog of orders has begun shipping and NBL management is assured we can meet our past commitments, we will resume accepting new orders. We will also be issuing new CRM prices (for calendar year 2015) and posting them on this website at a later date.
NBL is aware of the significant impact to our customers due to our extended stand-down of CRM sales. We sincerely apologize for this delay, and are working hard to implement new processes that will prevent any further disruptions to the supply of these vital materials. You may contact NBL at USDOE.NBL@science.doe.gov should you have further questions.
