AGC Increases Prices by Average of 6.5 Percent

AGC Automotive Replacement Glass in Gahanna, Ohio, has announced that it will increase its prices by an average of 6.5 percent on all new orders, effective August 1. The company cites the sharp price increases of fuel and raw materials, including raw glass, interlayer vinyl and energy, as the reason for the increase.

"Cost of most raw materials … are dramatically increasing and can no longer be absorbed by internal efforts only," the company writes in its statement regarding the increase.

In addition, AGC is increasing its delivery charge to $100 per stop.

At press time, company officials had not responded to a request for comment on the breakdown of the price increase by part.
