Dear Valued Customer

Price increase 1st December 2019 on Gyproc products

We as SCPD is proudly a dedicated Gyproc Saint-Gobain distributor and we strive to provide a consistent high level of service delivery and value offering on their products and systems.

It is our view that as a manufacturer they have been successful this past year in controlling costs and assisting the market where possible, especially on steel products. We have however been informed that due to inflationary increases of input costs (labour, fuel, raw materials etc), they will be passing on their annual price increase from the 1st of December.

This will in turn affect us to pass on a similar price increase on some of their products and systems from the 1st of December. This price increase will be mainly on board, plasters and accessories. As a specialist distributor we have decided to absorb any increase on steel in the interim to remain as competitive as possible in the market.

The above increase is based on both inflationary costs and historical market movements, with price increases ranging from 0 – 10% on different items. This makes category specific price increase percentages difficult to specify.

Please note that all customers will receive the price list effective 1st December 2019 in due course.

We thank you for your continued support and commit to remain as competitive as possible.
