News 08-2022




Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

as you know from the trade press and our own experience, we have been confronted with a dramatic price development for raw materials for some time now; the supply situation is also very tight.

In the wake of the pandemic effects on the globalizing markets, we have been confronted with increased demand for various raw materials and the resulting sharp price increases and longer delivery times.

Due to the Corona pandemic, industrial production volumes were scaled down globally in 2020. When demand picked up again, production was ramped up again, but the surge in demand cannot yet be met. This situation continued into the 1st quarter of 2022. 

Now this situation is being exacerbated by the war in Ukraine and the sanctions against the Russian Federation, and many raw materials from the region can no longer be supplied.

Based on these developments, we are forced to adjust our prices and apply an increase of 3% for our products from 01.05.2022.

For supplier parts we unfortunately have to pass on the price increases in full.

We regret the inconvenience caused by this situation which is beyond our control and thank you for your patience and trust.

Your team of Paul Gothe GmbH


Delivery problems:

Dear customers as you surely know there are currently immense problems in the area of goods traffic with China. As we, our suppliers and forwarding agencies are also affected by the closure of the port of Yantian, we are experiencing considerable delivery delays in the purchase of raw materials due to these circumstances. Not all products are affected, but we cannot guarantee an absolutely exact statement of delivery times at this time. We strive to keep our promises, but there may be occasional delays.

We apologize for these circumstances and hope for your understanding.




We constantly strive to improve our products and services through innovations and quality assurance measures. To achieve this goal, we are in continuous exchange with our customers and suppliers. However, thought-provoking impulses and new developments are also initiated by external institutions such as universities, authorities and industry associations. Therefore, we are all the more pleased to have received the certificate opposite as part of the research project "Opportunity-oriented approach to innovation management in SMEs" of the Technical University of Łódź, the University of Entrepreneurship and Law (Czech Republic) and the Faculty of Management of the University of Łódź as part of the cooperation. 





Unfortunately, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia is badly affected. We and our employees try everything to protect us against infection.

So far, the epidemic has no impact on manufacturing times. We haven't received any reports of delays in delivery from the suppliers. We ask for your understanding that the specification of the delivery time in the offer, the order confirmation and the information in the shop always refer to the current information status. If delivery times change due to cases of illnesses or even quarantine situations, we will notify you on this page and in case of an order via e-mail.

Our company implements the applicable recommendations of the Federal Office for Health Education, 50825 Cologne-Ehrenfeld and the Robert Koch Institute, 13353 Berlin on hygiene and infection protection.

Shipping times:

The outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has a significant impact on shipping times. At the moment, parcel services and freight forwarders are faced with various obstacles in road freight transport, especially at many EU borders. An imminent shortage of available driving personnel can also be seen. A timely and smooth delivery can no longer be fully guaranteed by parcel services and forwarding agents. This can lead to delays in service and service impairments as well as additional costs.

Please note that parcel services and forwarder currently return all not accepted deliveries with extra cost. It will not be possible to store shipments in the foreseeable future. These extra fees must pay by you, please make sure that the shipment can be accepted.
