Due to global increases in demand for raw materials and goods, in recent months we have experienced severe supply bottlenecks and reduced availability resulting in increased purchasing costs. The scarce transport capacities from overseas, as well as the lack of available containers for marine transport have worsened the current situation. Just like our suppliers of raw materials and goods, we too, as a manufacturer of steel and stainless steel products, have been impacted significantly by these developments, and have no other option than to increase our selling prices.
Jakob Rope Systems launches a new product. ModularRailing is a stainless steel railing system out of Webnet Frames. The system combines maximum flexibility with minimal planning effort. ModularRailing gives you a stainless steel railing with short lead times at a competitive price.
