PPG Announces Price Increase

Just six months after the last wave of industry price increases, Pittsburgh-based PPG Auto Glass has announced that it will implement a 4-percent price increase "on all auto glass parts, due to various rising costs." The company notified its customers yesterday via e-mail. The change takes effect February 4.

Gracie Sunderman, who authored the e-mail, notes that the company "will continue to implement process improvements to help offset rising product and operating costs without compromising service or quality."

Last July, PPG notified customers that it would be implement a 4-percent price increase on windshields and a 7-percent price increase on tempered parts (CLICK HERE for related story). That change originally was scheduled to take effect on July 19, 2007, but was delayed until July 30.
