Miraclon raises prices

Miraclon, which is now the custodian for the Kodak Flexcel system, has announced a price increase of 6% on all products, effective from February 7th, 2022. The company has also introduced temporary freight surcharges.

Chris Payne, CEO of Miraclon

Miraclon says that it is facing rapid inflation of raw material, energy, labour and distribution costs and that it is trying to pass the increased costs along in a manner that is as fair as possible to customers. 

Chris Payne, Miraclon CEO, explained: “Securing supply for our customers is our overriding priority. After weighing a combination of factors, we are taking two separate actions, because there are two different market forces at work. First, we’re raising the price of all our products to address the higher costs for raw materials, labour, utilities, and business services we are now paying. Second, we’re implementing temporary surcharges in response to the current higher costs as a result of the significantly extended supply chain and raised prices for distribution and freight services. We believe that increased costs are a temporary situation that will moderate, and as soon as we are able to, we will reduce, or remove, the surcharges. We are confident this strategy is in the best interests of our customers, the supply chain and Miraclon.”

Since most plate, ink and other suppliers will be facing the same pressures, it’s reasonable to conclude that we will see a number of similar stories over the next few weeks. Miraclon has set up a web page with more information at https://www.miraclon.com/security-of-supply/
