Dear Valued Customer,
Anzor has seen unprecedented increases in the cost of production and freight over the last 12 months.
We are heavily focused on maintaining high inventories and keeping stock outs to a minimum such that we can keep you and NZ Industry moving ahead.
During this last year, Nickel (which makes up most of the cost of stainless steel) has risen to USD $19,496/Ton, up 56% from USD $12,444/Ton the same time a year ago.
Carbon Steel has also increased significantly and freight costs have doubled for containers coming in from Asia and Europe.
As a result the landed cost of our product has increased by 10-25% over the last 12 months.
In an effort to keep any increase to you as low as possible, we will be putting prices up on most of our range by 8% effective 1st June 2021.
Any items being supplied under contract will continue to be supplied as agreed.
Any questions or concerns please contact your Anzor Account Manager or your local branch.
I thank you for your understanding - we will continue to keep excellent stock holdings and supplying fasteners….fast!
