Now, as the world grapples with ways to deescalate the war in Ukraine and the economic consequences thereof, energy markets have come under even more pressure. The availability of raw materials, Paraffin is an Oil-, which is a key factor in our supply chain, is now being put to the test. Products that are particularly affected by this is Xylene, Histolab Clear, Paraffin and products made of plastic. Over the last two years, we all have experienced a European supply deficit, which will now be even more constrained. Additionally the freight costs have also a huge impact. We recognize that the announced measurements will impact your business, but this is a necessary step to overcome the current crisis. It is regrettable, but this is a collective effort we must bear in the short term to secure feedstock availability in the long-term future. We also expect that this situation will stay for a period.
We reserve the right to change prices and delivery terms if we receive changes from our suppliers.
We hope that the situation stabilizes soon, and hope for continued good cooperation together during this difficult time.
