Market situation ingredients
Due to the current market situation we have to inform you that the already tense supply situation for our raw materials is getting worse.
Both, steel strip and wire material, are affected.
After the economy has recovered over the past six months raw materials are still rare and increasingly expensive.
The effects can be felt consistently and clearly. Non-binding order confirmations like “Delivery date subject to timely receipt of semi-finished products” are widely used.
New orders in individual strip grades with galvanized surfaces, cannot be bought until fourth quarter of the year.
The material price increase from quarter 1/2021 was just the beginning.
In quarter 2/2021 the prices of almost all material grades in the strip and wire material segment continue rising.
It is our duty to inform you about these changes.
We expressly point out that delivery dates can only be given subject to raw material availability.
Due to this situation, delivery delays cannot be ruled out.
As usual, we will inform you immediately of all delays and try to find solutions together with you.
We are doing our best to continue to being your supplier with delivers high quality at reasonable prices on time.
Please contact us if you have any problems.
We are here for you!
