Production Stop Sleeves

PRODUCTION STOP - VULCAN Synthesis Offset Sleeves

Trelleborg will cease distribution of VULCAN Synthesis Offset Sleeves effective December 31st, 2015. 

We would like to thank our Customers warmly for their loyalty and the continuous trust placed in our products. It is a source of satisfaction for us that we have been able to provide them with excellent print quality from our sleeves and we trust that we can both reflect proudly on our mutually successful cooperation.

In the recent year rising costs of materials, energy and labor have led to continuing cost increases in our Sleeve business. In addition to this there is a continuing decline in demand and volumes in this market segment over the last 2-3 years. Despite a price adjustment effective January 2014, we are struggling with steadily rising costs, declining market demand and falling profit margins. 

As a result of these combined factors, cost recovery and economic production is no longer feasible.  Unfortunately therefore we have to inform you that Trelleborg will cease distribution of VULCAN Synthesis Offset Sleeves effective December 31st, 2015. 

Orders which have been received before November 30th 2015 and recognized by an order-confirmation will be delivered to you in full to assist your smooth transition to an alternative manufacturer.
