Seven associations of the auto supplier industry have required politics to limit electricity and gas prices. "If the state does not cover the energy prices now, it ruins the companies and many thousands of jobs in the shortest possible time," said the managing director of the Blech Magformation Industrial Association (IBU), Bernhard Jacobs, according to a message from Thursday in Hagen. "It's five to twelve," said Jacobs. The energy costs are "crazy". He reported 11 times the previous year and gas price increases.

The Managing Director of the Metal Control Industrial Association, Tobias Hain, called for "a broad -based electricity production for the calibration" and the abolition of the previous electricity price formation, in which the price for the most expensive power plant determines the electricity price for everyone. "The state must take all conceivable measures and regulations and consider their long -term effects," said Hain.

The associations also called for the car company to accommodate. Business models that see the sole risk of procurement with the supplier would have survived. The supplier industry will no longer be the buffer, which keeps entrepreneurial risks away from their customers, explained the managing director of the German screw association, Hans Führlbeck.
