Guardian Announces Price Increase
On the heels of PPG's 3-percent price increase that was announced last
week (see glassBYTES March 17, 2006, PPG
Raises Prices 3 Percent), glass manufacturers Guardian and Pilkington
have followed suit.
In a letter dated March 17, Guardian announced a price increase of 3
percent "on all tempered and laminated glass parts shipped from our
National Distribution Center in Findlay, Ohio." The company stated
that increased manufacturing and transportation costs necessitated the
change and notes that it is the first increase "in several years."
