Description of Change: Due to a worldwide shortage of raw materials include plastic resin material, CTS is taking the proactive approach to qualify and phase in 2nd source suppliers to secure supply and maintain production activities without breaks in supply chain. The alternative materials will be of the same type and grade as the current materials such that CTS is confident that the fit, form, and function of the products will remain the same. Reason for Change: Worldwide Supply chain material shortage of plastic resin
CTS is committed to providing its customers with top-tier products that meet the growing list of industry-wide environmental standards and requirements. Today, our products comply in totality or with recognized exceptions within RoHS 3 (2015.863/EU). As you may be aware certain RoHS 3 exceptions will expire in July 2021, which have afforded the use of lower-cost copper-alloys, such as brass to contain up to 4% lead by weight. These materials are typically used in the fabrication of shaft, bushing, and other internal components critical to the function of our products. These components must be converted to lead-free to remain in compliance. Currently, CTS is taking the necessary steps to convert all sensor and control product lines ahead of this expiration. This industry-driven change will require the use of higher-cost lead-free brass. CTS has proactively worked with our materials suppliers to keep this impact to a minimum. We understand our customers' desire for consistency and continuity throughout fluctuations in the marketplace. To keep this notification simple and clear, pricing adjustments from this change will be consolidated within the annual CTS pricing notifications that will be tendered separately within the next 30 days.
