Back in August 2021, we wrote to you to tell you about our revised trade prices and that we would keep you informed as to when you could expect an update.

We can now let you know that your 2022 trade price guides will be available in a digital pdf format which you can request from the 1st of December 2021 by clicking here.  

For those who prefer a hard copy to leaf through, you can expect to receive a printed copy in the post in the New Year.

The new pricing will commence from the 1st of December 2021 and that both made to measure, and components and fabrics trade price guides will be subject to an 8.5% price rise.

Please note there may be some individual components that differ from this overriding 8.5% and will be reflected in the price guide.

Why are we doing this?

As mentioned in previous communications, significant global factors outside of our control affect the industry and remain prevalent in today’s marketplace.

  • Shipping delays and a further exponential increase in transport and aluminium costs
  • Shortage of and a rise in cost for raw materials
  • Inflation predicted to be as high as 5% for 2022
  • Labour cost - Yewdale has always paid above minimum wage and will be reflecting the increase with our production staff.

What is Yewdale doing to help?

At Yewdale, we’re a complete system provider - supporting local manufacturing and production. As we’re at the beginning of the supply chain we’ve done our best to stay transparent to our customers and update you of any challenges in good time.

This year we have weathered many cost increases and have worked hard to dilute the impact on our customers as much as possible.

We are very mindful of the shortage of supply to demand and as a company, we have increased our stockholding by over 45% this year alone to ensure we can best serve our customers. We are continuing to increase stock based on our predictions for the future.

What can you expect to see in your new 2022 price guides?

  • The made to measure price guide has been condensed into three price groups significantly removing the number of pages and making it easier to use (please note fabrics are largely still in the same grouping, they have just been relabeled for simplicity).
  • The components and fabrics price guide will now include our newly launched 2021 fabrics.
  • Plus, all new products and updates during the past year are now in both price guides!

We are aware that many industries worldwide are still facing similar challenges and are sorry for any inconvenience caused. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and loyalty and can assure you we are constantly driving to offer you the best possible service enabling you to do the same for your clients.
