L'AQUILA, Italy — Stardust Powder Coatings, L'Aquila, Italy, recently announced that despite difficulties in the procurement of many raw materials necessary to manufacture paints and coatings, the company is renewing its commitment to offer an attentive, reliable and timely service. The company also reported that the difficulty in procuring raw materials caused an increase in prices.

The company stated that paint manufacturers have been facing serious challenges in the procurement of raw materials. This is due to several reasons, including the increase in demand — due to a more rapid recovery of the market than expected, especially in China — and the difficulty in finding and transporting them. In this scenario, in order to keep offering a timely, reliable and beneficial service to its customers, Stardust has invested in improving production efficiency, boosted productivity — reorganizing production in a just-in-time perspective — and further consolidated its relationship with suppliers, a factor that guarantees the company a constant supply of raw materials even in such a difficult time.

"Our sector is experiencing a moment of great instability in the availability of raw materials. A situation that caused an increase in their price and that surprised the entire production chain, from suppliers of raw materials to coating manufacturers. Despite the persistence of this uncertain situation, we have worked hard in order to ensure the supply to all our customers in the required times. Customers and distributors have recognized and appreciated our effort, the support and reliability shown in this difficult situation and we can only be grateful for the trust placed in Stardust," said Guido Pozzoli, CEO of Stardust Powder Coatings.
