Information on the current raw materials market

Umkirch, 25. May 2021

When we sent out our new price lists at the end of March, we already announced that we are currently in a challenging situation on the raw materials market as a result of the Corona pandemic and other related economic factors.

As you may have read in the media, there is a worldwide shortage of raw materials in certain areas, which is currently affecting all sectors of the economy. Even where there is still availability, prices are rising sharply.

In recent weeks and days, Gerriets has been increasingly warned by suppliers of imminent price increases and potential supply interruptions.

We would like to pass on this information to our customers once again with foresight. We are monitoring the situation, but as described, we are confronted with longer delivery times and higher prices in the short and medium term. We would like to ask you, our customers, to expect longer delivery times and selective price increases as you plan for the reopening of theatres and opera houses and the (hopefully) revival of the live event industry and other sectors in the summer and autumn.

Early orders always help us, of course - but they are especially helpful now.

Thank you for your support!
Your Gerriets-Team
