Price increases coming next week
This time I have to blog about something rather unfortunate.
Increased costs is the reality of manufacturing electromechanical products in the current global climate. We’ve been absorbing and managing this for more than a year, in the hope that the situation would improve, but it is now time to make some adjustments.
Shipping costs increased not just by a few percent but are now multiples of what we had before and don't get me started about stupid prices for chips as the shortage continues until 2023.
Starting March 17th 2022, several products across our CSL, ClubSport, and Podium lines will increase in price. However, it’s not a blanket increase across all products, and I’m happy to say that we’ve been able to keep many products the same, including retaining the basic pricing for the core component in our ecosystem: the Wheel Bases. Following a reassessment of our price structure, we have also been able to lower the price of a small number of products due to a good currency exchange rate (the price decreases have already been applied today).
We wanted to give you a heads-up before we apply the price increases next week. We are keeping the changes to a minimum, and will continue to work hard to offer great value, innovation, and performance across the entire Fanatec product range.
So in short: If you plan to purchase something from us in the near future then this weekend would be the right time to do it. 😉
