Newsletter number 2 - 2021 from Canyonzone.com
Dear canyoneer, dear caver, dear .......... Summer Time - back in the canyons
Where can you be found this summer? Is there still a great canyoning or caving adventure planned for you? We will soon be heading to the Alps and will therefore be closed from July 31 to August 15.
As you certainly know, the world commodity markets have undergone strong price increases for several months; as a result, the prices undergo upward adjustments almost daily.
The strong increases affected all sectors, ranging from metals to plastics, from fabrics to wood. Nothing is being saved from this economic storm.
These speculations have an international character and are bringing practically all production chains to their knees.
In addition to the sharp increases described above, there is also a significant shortage in supplies, with deliveries that are now close to 3 / 6 months from the date of the order. This is what we experience at almost all brands we have in the collection. More and more products have release dates that are forwarded for 2-3 months or longer.
This makes a very difficult selling situation when production is not easy and paints a future where the only certainty is uncertainty.
This premise is necessary to announce that, despite all our desire to contain costs, we are forced to apply an inevitable increase in our prices, limited to the recovery of the strong increases that stainless steel, plastic and TPU fabric has recorded in recent months.
The price increase in our 2021 price lists, will be mandatory from 1st September 2021.
We will take care to adjust our prices downwards when a certain normality of the reference indices returns, which we hope will happen soon.
Sure of your understanding, we cordially greet all our valuable customers.
