At the beginning of February, we contacted you with a notice concerning the rising steel prices. At that time, we already suspected that this trend would continue and that prices would increase further. This development has once again forced us to take action. Therefore we have to adopt to the new circumstances and announce country specific surcharges.
The new prices will come into effect on 01 April 2021. Orders that are delivered by this date will still be served at the currently valid conditions. In order to ensure a fair and equitable distribution to all our customers, we ask for your understanding that the maximum order quantity is limited to an average monthly requirement, until 31 March 2021.
Furthermore, we have a special situation with Fradiflex®. Here, in addition to enormous cost increases, we are also confronted with dramatic supply bottlenecks. We therefore ask for your understanding that the price increase for Fradiflex® is in immediate effect. Despite the shortage of raw materials, we are trying to maintain supplies and can only make a statement about quantities and delivery times once orders have been received.
