Finally got a reply, here it is:

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your e-mail.

Sayal Electronics strives to satisfy its customers.  Once in a while
because of our purchasers at the time of scarcity we end up paying
premium price, which in turn reflects in our selling price.  We would
love to have you as our customer and will do every thing possible to
adjust the price.

Please let us know what quantity would your organization wants to buy,
and we will adjust the price even for individual buyers.
