Dear valued customer,
As mentioned in previous communications, since 2016 our raw material and logistics expenses have seen a substantial increase across our entire casings portfolio. Reasons are shortages, force majeure situations and increased demand from other applications (i.e. the automotive industry).
Continuous cost reduction programs have enabled us to keep your prices stable in recent years. However, we now reached the point where price adjustments are unavoidable. These new prices will support our focus to maintain the highest quality standards and will be effective for deliveries as of September 15th, 2018. These price adjustments will encompass our entire polymer, viscose and transfer casings portfolio.
Your sales representative will contact you in the next few days to explain the new pricing structure in more detail. Where possible, we will provide alternative products to ease the pricing pressure.
We look forward to continuing supplying you with our high-quality products in the future.
Siegfried Weber Chief Operating Officer
