Lowest Available Pricing (LAP)
Jelinek Cork Group is committed to providing all customers with the lowest available pricing in the market. With this as a commitment Jelinek introduced the LAP policy. By encouraging price matching, this policy allows all Jelinek customers the opportunity to purchase goods at the lowest possible price.
The LAP program pledges that Jelinek will discount prices to any customer at minimum 5% below the lowest verifiable current price quoted by any other supplier.
By acting as manufacturer and distributor Jelinek Cork is capable of providing prices to customers without the traditional added markups required at each sales transaction.
Although Jelinek always strives to quote the most competitive prices, there may be times when for a variety of reasons (i.e. currency exchanges, ocean freight surcharges, competitors’ clearance discounts, special sale prices, etc.) others could be quoting lower prices at some given time. The LAP policy insures that such lower prices are also available to Jelinek customers.
For verification purposes, when deemed necessary, Jelinek reserves the right to request samples and/or a copy of the competitor’s written quotation or price list to determine that the product, quality, quantity, and terms & conditions are comparable and qualify for LAP. The decision as to whether or not prices or products qualify remains solely with Jelinek.
The many years of experience in the cork industry from the gathering of the raw material at the forest level, through the manufacturing processes, to the final distribution logistics provide Jelinek the unique opportunity to pass onto our customers the most competitive pricing available.
