Loyal Sponsor and Long Time MSB Supporter Jeff Gleason (AKA the Berkey Guy) wanted me to share the following important update with The Survival Podcast Community.
To the TSP & MSB community from Jeff “The Berkey Guy” @ GoBerkey.com/Directive21.com,
It’s no surprise that recent world events have impacted and are continuing to reshape the world as we know it. Product/Service providers along with their customers are all experiencing the effects of such dynamic history. As an affiliate privileged to serve the TSP/MSB community, we want to thank Jack Spirko for the opportunity to support his endeavors. He provides practical content and valuable insight which we appreciate. We offer this letter of intent addressing the availability of Berkey® products.
As many of you might already know, the Berkey® Water Purification systems have grown in exposure over the last few years, especially the last 6 months. Demand is increasingly steep and the trend is vertically positive. As an authorized dealer for the manufacturer (New Millennium Concepts, Ltd.) of the Berkey® products for almost 6 years, we want the TSP/MSB community to know that although specific models of the stainless steel systems have approached back order status, namely the Big, Royal, Imperial, and Crown, we will continue to make the Berkey Light™, Travel Berkey®, Go Berkey Kit, Sport Berkey® available, as well as Emergency Seedbanks, Aquatanks for water storage, and other preparedness products.
For real-time status updates & information, we encourage TSP/MSB community-members to subscribe to our newsletter at our site directive21.com.
Almost needless to say, shipping times adjust with increased demand, but we will continue to do our best to ship products directly and to expedite processing for those which we have fulfilled by our partners/manufacturers. We are fortunate to have strong relationships with our business partners and this strengthens our resolve to serve you.
A little insight: We are committed to being upfront about shipping times and product fulfillment expectations and will not accept backorders when the uncertainty of availability requires us to compromise our integrity, although many others are not pursuing this course. We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing our service to the TSP/MSB community.
Personally I think it says a lot that Jeff is basically saying when any item goes into back order status to a point where he can’t commit to a ship date he will not be taking orders on certain product. It takes integrity for a supplier to do this. I am also sure Berkey is taking steps to minimize future back orders. If you do have questions please understand I will be deferring to Jeff on this and it may take him longer to respond than what you have come to expect from my response times.
