Important information regarding inflationary price increases
As you will undoubtedly be aware, over the last 18 months, the industryhas experienced significant price increases across all materials culminating in a structural change to resin charges.
I am writing to you personally to advise you of an upcoming price increase on our manufactured and bought-in goods. This will take effect on orders placed on or after Tuesday 1 February 2022.
Inflationary price increase on all products will be 14% with a 20% surcharge.
The rationale for leaving the surcharge in is that we believethe resin price will reduce at som epoint in 2022, which will allow us to reduce the surcharge element of the increase proportionately.
The surcharge does not apply to the following products:
The POA quotes for conservatory roofs and the pricing matrices for Skypod and Equinox will be updated to take account of the aluminium, PVC, steel increases as well as other products. The aluminium increase within the price will be 25%, alongside the bar length products. Please be mindful that quotes are for acceptance for 28 days. If your customers will be taking the roofs in a number of months’ time, then you will need to factor in the increases.
Rest assured, we are working hard to negotiate with suppliers and making every effort not to pass on all cost increases to you. However, as with the resin increase, we are seeing similar increases on other raw materials, compounded by increased costs on shipping, steel, aluminium, electricity and fuel.
We do have some exciting news early in 2022 as we develop and broaden our product range which will give you more opportunity within our sector.
I would personally like to thank you for your understanding and commitment throughout 2021 and look forward to working together in 2022 and beyond.
