To Our Valued Customers
Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have seen a significant weakening of the logistics chain in the Far East. As a result, we are now encountering massively higher logistics costs and longer transit times. Additionally, the current economic environment is confronted with a supply crisis. Therefore, we are overwhelmed by a supply shortage in the global semiconductor sector. Prices are soaring that even simple controllers are currently difficult to obtain. Manufacturers can expect delivery times to be 40 weeks or more!
Consequently, the European market for display glasses is affected, and supply is becoming scarce. Therefore, prices and delivery times have also increased noticeably in Switzerland in the last few weeks.
Plastic granules for injection molded products have not escaped the predicament. They have become exceedingly expensive this year, not to mention a supply shortage as well as delayed delivery times.
Due to this crisis, we strongly suggest that you plan early, and determine your future needs for the year ahead. Please consult us about the products as soon as possible and expect that last year’s prices may no longer be valid.
We expect that this crisis is not going away any time soon and will probably worsen in the coming months.
We are always at your disposal for further inquiries and thank you for thinking ahead.
