Inevitably, and as commented on in our update on this site on the 25th January, we have now had price increases (some we had already had late in 2020) from ALL of the manufacturers we distribute for.
There are a myriad of reasons for these rises generally but covered by one or more of the following:
- Cost of components and raw materials at source of manufacture
- Cost of shipping (as noted in many national press articles)
- Cost increases owing to Brexit and import duties.
Even though BernliteLED invested heavily in stocks throughout 2020, and the early part of this year, we need to implement the increases as our stock turns over.
We do now respectfully suggest you check with our sales team, especially on large volumes, the current situation for the following manufacturers and their products. There is no definitive nor standard % increase, from any of the manufacturers. In some instances these increases are over and above some already received earlier in 2020.
Products from the following are now affected:
