Dear Valued Customer,
I wanted to share an update regarding our national price increase announcement from our CEO dated April 4th. Raw material increases, and in some cases limited availability and tariffs on certain products, continue to put pressure on our suppliers. To date, they have collectively passed along price increases to distribution in every month of 2018. In addition, the combination of the driver shortages, fuel costs and the added cost of complying with the new EOBR regulations from Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration continues to cause freight and transportation costs to soar.
These factors compel us to pass along the previously communicated increases of 5% - 10% on all orders shipped June 4, 2018 or later.
Also, we are anticipating a third round of supplier increases. In order to prepare your organization for these inflationary times, we would encourage you to incorporate the current increases into your bidding and quoting. We will continue to share information as it becomes available. As always, feel free to contact your local sales representative with specific questions or concerns.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership. We look forward to servicing you as we work together in 2018.
