CONTECH Increases Prices for Corrugated Metal and PVC Products

January 2010 Vol. 65 No. 1

CONTECH Construction Products Inc. announced January 12 a price increase for its corrugated metal and PVC products. The price increase will be 8.9% for all corrugated metal products and 9.0% for all PVC pipe products.

“Increased order activity in the steel industry along with increased raw material and steelmaking input costs from our suppliers are the main reasons for this price increase,” said Steve Spanagel, President of CONTECH Sales. “In addition, the steady increase in raw material costs from our suppliers is the main reason for the PVC price increase. It is critical that we recover our costs related to rising raw materials costs, while minimizing the impact of these increases to our customers.”
