Material surcharge from August 23, 2021

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We previously informed you in our last letter that a further adjustment of the material surcharges would be necessary if the material prices do not relax. Since May 2021, the material prices have again risen significantly, hence an increase in the current material surcharge is inevitable for us.

Because of this ongoing situation, our material surcharges from August 23, 2021 are:

  • 13% for all articles, except for selected mild steel articles (see next point)
  • 19% for all mild steel articles except pull-rings and items with actuators. Pull-rings and items with actuators are only increased by 13%

The situation on the procurement market is still very tense and it is difficult to fulfill steel requirements. We continue to pursue a procurement strategy in which we ensure that our needs are met over the long term. Nevertheless, the tense situation on the procurement markets may mean that we will not always be able to meet promised delivery dates in the future.

We will continue to monitor the development of material prices in the coming months. Any further adjustments of our material surcharges will depend on the ongoing situation and its effect on our purchasing costs, in the hope of being able to completely cancel them again. Should material prices continue to rise, we cannot rule out further increases.

The adjusted material surcharge will be marked on your offers / order confirmations from August 23, 2021. There will be no adjusted price list or an adjusted catalog.

If you have any questions about the material surcharge or our products, please do not hesitate to contact our sales team by phone (0571 9558 201) or by email (sales(at)

We sincerely ask for your understanding and look forward to working with you in the future.

With best regards,

The Management
