MARCH 2021
Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to the latest 4PLAS newsletter, this month we wanted to update you with a review of market conditions that have required exceptional levels of customer support.

Through 2020 and the start of 2021 we have all had to contend with very challenging market conditions, more recently these have been rapidly rising polymer prices and shortages.

These same polymer shortages, stock outrages and extended lead times, rapidly rising prices across all polymers types, container shortages, packaging shortages, shipping issues, weather delays, port delays and zero UK stocks of materials such as ABS, PS, PC, PP & PE to name a few, have and continue to be a huge issue.

4PLAS has through our long terms relationships and focus on 4PLAS compounds managed to support our customers with minimal increases in some lead times and our commitment to maintaining stock levels has ensured reduced disruption to our supply commitments. 

Our team has been working tirelessly with our customers to maintain supply, even through the added complications of Brexit, Covid and the new European Trade deal, modifying our systems to ensure that all were successfully managed and all customers kept fully informed of any  changes.

We continually work on supply and costs, such that not only have we successfully managed our existing customers, we have also welcomed a raft of new customers, many of whom have expressed great satisfaction with the service and support they have received from our dedicated team.

Not only have 4PLAS increased our customer base, we have also received an unprecedented increase in requests for grades substitutions and supply support, we continue to offer this service and would welcome the opportunity to help you with any pricing or supply issues you may have. 

Following the amazing roll out of the UK vaccination programme, we now have a road map out of lockdown and we can only hope the rest of the world catches up. This in turn should lead to a reduced level of Covid transmission, and we see things slowly returning back to the old normal, at which point hopefully prices and lead times for polymer resins will start to fall.

Should you wish to discuss this or any of our existing products further, or wish to suggest any topics or specific applications you want us to cover please let us know and we will try and include them.

Alternatively if you have a new compound application or a problem grade you would like replaced, please contact us at or call us on 0870 446 0424 and we would be happy to assist.
