Haltermann Solutions Announces Price Adjustments
Effective Monday, March 3, 2014
Dear Valued Haltermann Customer:
Our last price adjustment occurred in November 2012. For a long period, raw material pricing varied little, allowing us to hold pricing steady throughout 2013. A current analysis indicates that raw material pricing has moved enough to result in a change in pricing of several of our products. We are pleased to announce that these adjustments represent price DECREASE of several of our gasoline emission certification products. In addition, we have significantly lowered Made-to-order (MTO) drummed fuels in quantities above 10 drums.
Given our historical pricing strategy, we are passing the savings on to you.
The price adjustments will be effective Monday, March 3, 2014.
For all customers using blanket pricing, the new blankets will be sent to you by this Friday, February 14, 2014. Please ensure that the new blanket prices are uploaded by the effective date in March. Haltermann will verify that the blanket prices are reflected in customer systems prior to the effective date to minimize any chance of delayed shipments.
To determine the price impact of the specific fuels you purchase, please contact your Haltermann Solutions customer service representative or your Account Manager.
Over the past several years, our pricing actions have been consistent with our previous price announcements in which we committed to the following:
- If the variation, up or down, in Haltermann’s raw material pricing is relatively small, Haltermann is committed to maintain price levels to help stabilize fuel prices.
- If, however, the cost of our raw materials changes, in either direction, up or down, beyond nominal levels, we adjust our pricing accordingly. Therefore, effective March 3, 2014, we are pleased implement modest price changes for our products; some have increased, some have no change, but MOST HAVE DECREASED.
We know how much effort is needed by our customers to implement price adjustments and want to thank you in advance for your efforts. If raw material prices again stabilize, we will strive to reduce the frequency of price adjustments and provide price stability.
Finally, our customers have asked us to make quarterly price announcements, whether the pricing has moved or not. Hence, please expect another announcement from Haltermann in May 2014.
We sincerely appreciate your continued business with Haltermann Solutions. Please contact your Haltermann Account Managers, Elisha Petersen (313-806-9172) or Josh Petersen (615-812-7063), your customer service representative (800-969-2542) or me, personally, should you have any questions.
