Upcoming: New Pricing Effective 1st October 2021
Over recent months the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in rising costs for many companies.
Commodity prices have increased. Copper is up 25%, Nickel is up 60% and we’ve seen 25% increases in Iron Ore and Zinc. Suppliers have been forced to increase prices due to raw material increases and supply shortages. Some suppliers have increased prices on a month-by-month position, they have also added surcharges to offset increases in shipping charges.
In our business we’ve seen sharp increases in shipping costs as well as lengthy lead times and shipping delays due to a shortage of container space. Lead times from some suppliers are now between 6 and 12 months and have resulted in a greater reliance on air freight. To date we have not passed these costs onto customers.
New pricing effective 1st October 2021
As a result of rising product and shipping costs we will be issuing a new price list effective 1st October 2021. The new price list will include price increases in the range of 6 - 10% depending on the product. The price list will be available mid-September 2021 and emailed to all customers. Any questions regarding pricing should be directed to our sales team on 1800 272 879 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
