Worldwide GRP price reduction program

GRP have announced their Worldwide GRP price reduction program, to be launched officially this month. To help face up to the serious worldwide financial crisis which is involving all sectors their idea is to make all high quality GRP products, tires, engines, and gadget lines, available at greatly reduced prices compared with 2008. This price reduction is possible by reducing to a minimum their margins, by removing some steps in the traditional distribution chain, and by the distributors also accepting a reduction of their margins. In this way they intend to widen the range of end-users, who will be able to purchase now, at advantageous prices, their top end products.
