In the last few weeks there have been increasing reports of delivery problems for building products. Certain timbers, insulation materials as well as some plastics are associated with lead time issues for various reasons. At the same time, several manufacturing companies in the building industry have announced price increases during the running year. At the moment there is no change in lead times for FOS products, e.g. all types of clips are available ex stock and ready for dispatch at short notice. Never-the-less, even our company is not exempt from having to make adjustments due to macro-economic events.
To ensure continuity of stock availability, we have carried out extensive material scheduling into 2022. However, planning could only be implemented at significantly higher prices, which are currently being asked for.That is why we are adjusting our prices to the current situation from June 1st, 2021. We have decided to update our surcharges, some will be increased and other products will have a new surcharge. This enables us to react in a flexible manner and at short notice to compensate further changes, if the need arises.
