Product Pricing Increases & Our Committment to Safe Products

Submitted by Dufort et Lavigne on June 15, 2020.

 

 

Since January 2020, the strong global demand for medical supplies, and more specifically for personal protective equipment (PPE), has had two main effects:

 

» Increased Backorder situations, limits of supply and inability to meet new demand

» Increase in costs passed onto Medline Canada (due to cost of raw materials, processing costs, transportation costs, etc.)

 

While our procurement and management teams work to reach agreements with manufacturers to minimize the impact of price increases on our customers, increases are unfortunately unavoidable. For example, the cost of acquiring masks has increased by more than 300%.

 

Please note that we are aware of the impact that such a price increase can have on the budget of a clinic, hospital, nursing home or care facility or for anyone requiring medical supplies.

 

For that reason, we remain committed to maintaining, as far as possible, our pre-pandemic prices. However, faced with this new reality, we will have to adjust prices on certain products. These increases reflect our new acquisition costs. Medline | Dufort et Lavigne will not take advantage of the situation to increase its profit margins. These will remain the same.

 

In addition, you can rest assured that Medline | Dufort et Lavigne offers you only quality medical products certified by Health Canada. We have been very selective in establishing relationships with the new suppliers that have emerged in the market. We declined offers from those who could not guarantee the qualityand certification of their products. We believe that products that protect must be fully tested and safe under all circumstances.

Priority will be given to Québec hospitals for which a contract has been signed for protective products.
