On top of the already tense situation regarding global supply chains, we have also been experiencing the effects of the tragic events in Ukraine since February this year. We very much hope, particularly for all those affected in the crisis region, that a way can be found to ease the conflict. Our company will meanwhile continue to be involved in organizing relief efforts.
In this letter, we would like to inform you about the effect that global developments are having on our supply chains and procurement markets and what this means as a result.
The situation in Ukraine has led to a further significant increase in prices on procurement markets. The price of stainless steel in particular, but also energy costs, and gasket and flange prices have risen to extremely high levels. The inflation rate has now reached over 7% and we are experiencing further significant price increases in virtually all commodity groups in 2022.
Due to the fact that price increases on the procurement markets have played out very differently so far for the various product groups, we have decided to completely revise our price list.
It now reflects in particular the different price increases of input materials as well as increased energy costs in the various product groups, so that a new differentiated price list has been created. Where possible, we have main-tained the previous prices at the same level. From June 3, 2022, our catalog with the new price list will be available here. The price list will apply from June 13, 2022. The material surcharges that you are familiar with are still valid.
Furthermore, with effect from August 1, 2022 we will be introducing a surcharge for small quantities up to a net goods order value of €80.00. The surcharge amounts to €.40.00.
If you have any queries concerning these price adjustments, material surcharges or our products, please do not hesi-tate to contact our sales team any time by phone (+49 571 9558 201) or email (sales(at)jacob-rohre.de).
We look forward to continuing to work together with you, despite these turbulent times, and thank you for your loyalty.
