The economic effects of the war between Russia and Ukraine have also been noticeable here for weeks and are exacerbating the current market situation many times over due to the corona pandemic, which has been going on for more than 2 years.
We receive information every day about short-term massive price increases due to raw material shortages and enormously increased energy prices. In order to continue to be supplied, we have to accept the price increases; also so that your security of supply is guaranteed as best as possible. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we cannot bear these massive price increases alone.
We are therefore forced to increase our sales prices by 5% on June 1st, 2022. This decision was not easy for us; especially considering that we informed you in January that we would not change our prices.
We ask for your understanding for this step in this special situation.
