Rumours are being spread maliciously that KFS will no longer supply anyone in France. This is completely untrue, unfounded & is nothing more than sour grapes being spread by an agent of one particular resin copier operating in France.

I have many legitimate customers in France & I am happy to supply products to them. However, I reserve the right to refuse to trade with anyone, as & when I see fit, either at home or abroad, in order to protect the interests of my business & its products.

If this offends, so be it.
