The Slovenian company EK (formerly EKWB), which produces liquid cooling systems, has announced that it is forced to increase the prices of its products. The manufacturer notes that the decision was not easy for him, but that the current market situation required it.
The company cited higher labor costs, increased material costs and delivery difficulties as reasons for the increase in costs. The manufacturer indicated that its solutions will increase in price by about 8%. The company did not specify which products would be affected, but did point out that the price increase would come in April. Orders placed before the end of March will not be affected by the price increase.
“We are trying to be as transparent as possible and will therefore update you on some changes over the coming weeks. Due to various factors such as B. increasing costs and complexity of supplying materials for production, as well as increasing labor costs, we will increase the prices of some of our products. The changes will take effect on March 31, 2023. The price increase affects only certain types of our products. On average, the price of them will increase by 8%. Any orders placed before March 31, 2023 will not be affected by these changes. We would like to add that this decision was difficult for us, but all the observed changes in the market forced us to take this step.”— says the statement of the company EK.
EK works closely with many leading computer hardware manufacturers, including AMD, Intel and NVIDIA. For many models of motherboards and graphics cards on the market, EK produces water blocks specially designed for them.
