To Our Valued CrewBoss Customers,
We recently received notification from our fabric suppliers that DuPont Safety has increased the price of their Nomex® fiber by 10% globally for the emergency response market effective April 15th, 2019. Nomex® fiber is a key raw material in FR (Fire-Resistant) fabric that is utilized in the manufacturing of CrewBoss PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) products for the fire service market. As a result of this mid-year increase from DuPont Safety, prices for garments utilizing Nomex® will rise industrywide.
We are doing everything that we can to reduce and delay the effects of this price increase on our distribution partners and end users. Although the increased cost of raw materials have already been applied, we have made the decision to maintain our current price list until June 14th 2019. This will give you the opportunity to place any additional orders for the season prior to the mandatory increase going into effect on June 15th. Any new orders placed on June 15th, 2019 or after will be processed based on a revised 2019 Price List – Effective June 15th, 2019.
Director of Sales
