DuPont Electronics & Industrial is implementing a 7% price increase on Cyrel plates, effective 1 March 2022. Over the past year, the company has continued to incur significant cost increases in critical raw materials for Cyrel Solutions, and freight costs have also increased drastically for critical modes and routes.  

“The organization has been working hard to mitigate cost impacts and will continue with this effort. However, this price increase is necessary due to the significant and prolonged impact”, explains Tucker Norton, global business director at the company.

DuPont is committed to fulfilling the customers’ needs for the best quality products

Tucker added, “Despite global challenges in logistics, our team is working tirelessly to keep our customers worldwide supplied at required levels. Especially during this pandemic, we continue our commitment to meet our customers’ needs for high-quality products”.

The DuPont Cyrel Solutions team remains committed to delivering our products in a timely and efficient manner to support your critical needs and is working to ensure our performance, quality, and reliability as we navigate inflationary pressures.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
