During the last years we have worked continuously on the improvement of workflows and manufacturing processes in our company. Thereby we have obtained a lot regarding the improvement of productivity.
Despite all these measures it is not possible to fully compensate the permanent increasing expenses in fields of raw material. The same is applying to the further increasing expenses in field of personnel. For these reasons mentioned we are forced for the first time since 2012 to a price increase of 4,5%.
This price increase becomes valid beginning from 1st August 2017.
The price increase concerns all now incoming orders with delivery date starting from 1st August 2017. Existing orders incl. orders on call are not concerned. Same is applying to agreed fixed prices. An adjustment of those prices will follow after agreed contractually expiry date.
We are aware that this price increase is an immense burden to you.
Nevertheless there is no other opportunity to respond to the current market situation for raw, indirect and operating materials as well as energy prices. This is the only way to provide you with products of highest quality and “Made in Germany” on a longterm basis.
