Every once in a while, macroeconomic influences force us to review our prices. As from the 1st of January 2020 the cost price part of our prices will raise, due to an increasing sugar price, costs of wages and utilities.
From today, all price quotes for 2020 will include the new tariff.
If base material prices will decrease, you probably will not perceive the raise, but if those prices will remain at the same level (or worse: increase), a price change will be perceptible. Obviously, this raise does not affect current contracts.
We appreciate our collaboration and we thank you in advance for understanding.
Relatives Canadian war hero enabled to attend commemoration ceremony
On October 5th 1944, the 22-year old Canadian pilot Harold Frederick Wakeman, crashed with his plane at Veenendaal-De Klomp station (NL), while contributing to our liberation.
Exactly 75 years later, Harold’s relatives, including his youngest brother, were invited by the Harold Wakeman Foundation, to attend the commemoration ceremony and unveiling of a monument at the exact location where Harold Wakeman died.
We’re proud to support the HWF in enabling Harold’s relatives to commemorate the 75th anniversary of his death. With a personal note they showed their gratitude to all involved for remembering the lives of their relative and all the others who gave their lives to the liberation of the Netherlands.
