Notification of general price increase

Unfortunately we have to announce an across the board price increase effective 01 October 2018.

We will do our best to keep increases as low as possible across the board and negotiate as hard as we can with our various suppliers, but it is largely out of our control and add resins cannot absorb these increases any longer.

I hope you understand our position and we will do everything we can in our customer’s interest, but we need to remain sustainable to enable add resins to continue to provide the best quality products and service at competitive price levels.
