Calor Gas to Phase Out 6kg Lite Cylinder
Calor Gas has announced that it is to phase out its 6kg Calor Lite cylinder, and is planning to launch a new model for the caravanning market.
The company's announcement stated that it will continue to invest in its standard 6kg cylinder, for which demand continues to grow, and that it will increase investment in the cylinder to £1 million this year. Calor Gas's has research underway into a new, improved 'leisure/caravan cylinder', one factor of which will be its weight.
As for the 6kg Calor Lite cylinder, it will be harder to get hold of replacement stock as the firm runs down the discontinued model. Customers will be able to get a standard 6kg cylinder as a free replacement where suppliers no longer have the Lite version available.
The recall of 6kg Calor Lite cylinders made between 2008 and 2011 is to be closed from 1st July 2017. Customers with recall vouchers who present them to suppliers after this date will still be able to use them. They will be given either a direct replacement, or the standard 6kg cylinder, depending upon availability.
