After more than five years of stability: price increase on July 15th, 2021
For us, partnership always means transparency. Therefore we would like to inform you about an upcoming price adjustment from July 15th, 2021.
As you have already experienced or can unfortunately experience for yourself at the moment, the current situation on the world markets is leading to considerable disruptions and bottlenecks in the supply chains and material procurement. In addition, there are the dynamically developing logistics and procurement costs for raw materials and components, which have been causing prices to rise sharply in almost all markets for months. The world market price for copper, one of the most important resources in the electronics industry, has increased by more than 50% since July 2020. The cost of wood, iron and neodymium also rose sharply. We expect purchase prices to become more dynamic, especially in the second half of 2021.
The price goes up – the sound stays the same!
After 5 years of price stability, we are therefore forced to adjust our prices to this market development under these conditions. A new price calculation will therefore apply to our entire range from July 15th. Please take this adjustment into account for upcoming projects, especially when preparing offers to third parties. Keep current offers, price agreements and existing orders until July 15th. of course their validity. Since our warehouse still has ready-to-ship loudspeakers for those willing to buy and last-minute decisions and material for productions, we continue to accept orders at the old price, but with reservations, up to the specified date.
Note: Since there were also many transport and logistics bottlenecks in exports in the past, we recommend an exploratory discussion with us regarding availability, deadlines and delivery dates with regard to your future project planning. Please contact us in good time so that we can process your orders reliably and as smoothly as possible.
Please note that this price adjustment is based on a mixed calculation. So it is primarily based on the current inventory and inventory and is therefore a snapshot. We therefore reserve the right to make a further selective price adjustment in October 2021.
With kind regards
