Scandicast Material surcharge could be calculated and applied on invoice day, when real material costs used in production are known. By default castings we produce four weeks before moment of sale so as references for calculation we take material prices used in month of production.
As the time gap from the moment order confirmation to production can be from several weeks to several months, we are unable to provide you with exact value of the Material charge.
Changes to the previous material surcharge index are applied if the fluctuations exceed the +/- 5 limit. If the change is less, Scandicast keeps Material surcharge unchanged.
Material charge changes from 29/04/2022 :
Last year's events and high activity in the industry have affected the prices of foundry materials for several quarters in a row. It has also had a significant impact on our production costs. In fact, there are no production costs that have not increased in recent months.
In order to ensure the availability of raw materials and a stable production process in the coming months, for all deliveries from May 2022 the material surcharge will be increased by 0.195 EUR / kg.
This is a temporary solution that would guarantee deliveries in the ordered quantity and promised time.
