16 Jun Dungs Price Increase & Leadtime Update May 2021
The current pandemic and economic situation are creating several extraordinary challenges in our marketplace. Raw material shortages are causing steep price increases and longer delivery times.
We regret this situation and wish to assure you that we are doing everything within our abilities to improve the situation as quickly as possible.
The extraordinary cost increases in the supply chain force us to adjust our product prices during 2021. We will therefore increase prices of the following product groups:
Product Group Double solenoid valves (DMV-x) +2,0%
Product Group GasMultiBloc®, Multifunctionals (MBx, excl. MBE) +1,5%
Product Group Solenoid Valves (MVx) +2,8%
Prices for our newly introduced MBE systems will not be affected by this price change.
New prices are effective on all deliveries from 1st August 2021.
As a valued customer, we very much appreciate your loyalty and business especially in these challenging times. We can assure you of our full support to your business, high quality products and continuity of deliveries.
With best regards
Karl Dungs GmbH & Co. KG

You will be aware that Global Supply chains are currently facing unprecedented shortages.
This is due to a wide range of issues from raw materials & component shortages, casting capacities, and continued sickness rates caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Even timber pallets, packaging & shipping containers are suffering extended lead-times.
The Dungs supply chain is not isolated from this and the situation is changing weekly. It is therefore extremely difficult for all suppliers to commit to delivery dates.
While we still have good levels of UK stock, some products such as Multiblocs(R), threaded double valves (DMV), certain pressure switch lines and valve proving systems (230V) remain on 12 – 14 week lead-times despite increasing our own production capacity to 3 shifts.
Please rest assured that we are doing everything possible to improve the situation and we apologise for the delivery delays.
We appreciate your loyalty & patience as we continue to work with our supply chain to resolve bottlenecks.
