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."
