Xsys has announced price increases across the nyloprint product range from 1 February 2022. The increase comes as a direct response to the unprecedented levels of cost inflation, which up until now have been mitigated by the company through various cost-reduction initiatives and projects, as well as technology improvements and other efficiency gains.

However, in 2021, the cost inflation being absorbed by the company has increased to unequaled levels. Cost inflation is being passed on by suppliers and is present across a number of input costs as detailed below – 

  • Raw material and feedstock suppliers are implementing double-digit price increases.
  • Soaring gas and electricity costs have resulted in significant inflation in Xsys production costs and increased costs from suppliers.
  • Freight costs are increasing, with the World Container Index at +15% since July 2021. This is having an impact on the supply of raw materials, as well as sea and land freight within the the company supply chain network.

Xsys will increase the price between 7% and 15%

The additional inflation seen in 2021 shows no signs of retracting. As a result, the company will implement a price increase of between 7% and 15% across the nyloprint product range, effective 1 February 2022.

“Securing the supply of our products in a timely manner to customers remains our priority. We will maintain full support of our customers with technical service and quality products during this challenging economic period,” said Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial vice president at the company. “Furthermore, Xsys will continue to invest in projects and efficiency drives designed to counter the inflation where possible.”

 

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.
