Manufacturer Wienerberger has become the latest to notify customers of a 10.3% range-wide increase in new orders and pre-orders awaiting shipment from January 1, 2022.
Wienerberger warned that planned price increases should cover the expected increase in production and capital costs, but could not promise to cap the increase for next year.
In a letter to clients, the company said: “We expect these prices to be sufficient to cover the confirmed cost increases that we have already experienced during the year and, given the highly volatile outlook for the development of costs, we will take a close look at how the situation develops. over the next few months and therefore reserves the right to further update our prices in 2022 should this become necessary. “
Rival brick giant Ibstock last month informed customers that prices will rise 10.5% across its ranges from November. He blamed rising energy and fuel prices and exceptional price increases on transportation.
Brick maker Michelmersch also recently informed its customers of a 7-9% increase, according to brickwork contractors.
