Effective October 24th 2011, Fritz-Pak will be raising prices approximately 5% on all products.
It has been 3 years since our last price increase, and a lot has changed in that time. Normally, we would have increased prices a year ago, or more. But due to the recession, we didn’t feel that it would have been fair to our customers. So for the past year, we have been letting our margins fall to keep prices steady.
Unfortunately, the biggest factor in our pricing is completely out of our control, and that is the cost of energy. Our products require a high amount of energy, in manufacturing, drying, and transportation. As the price of energy increases, so does the cost of our materials.
We do our best to source all our products locally to provide the lowest cost to our customers. We are constantly trying to find new sources for our materials to keep costs low, but never at the expense of settling for a lower quality material. In fact, the quality of materials we use has continually improved over the years.
We are providing all our customers with 4 weeks notice so that everyone has enough time to stock up at the old prices if they need to. During this time, we will be reminding you periodically about the price change. If you buy directly from us, we will be sending you an updated price list shortly. If you are buying from a distributor, please contact them directly for updated pricing.
As always, you can send your orders to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will continue to honor the old prices until October 24th. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
