Domestic Steel Pipe Increase This Week

We are currently holding prices but will be advising you of new levels in later this week. Please call us to place your Domestic Steel Pipe orders before the increase.

PVC Pipe Increase Wednesday, 4/10

PVC pipe mills have announced that due to increases in the cost of raw materials like PVC resin, coinciding with the surge in demand during the spring season, they will be raising prices. We will hold current price levels through tomorrow, 4/9, and release a new list price sheet for PVC Pipe products dated 4/10 on Wednesday.

Copper Tube Increase Now in Effect

Copper is up another $.03/lb. today to $4.27/lb. after extending its month-long run of closing at $4/lb. or more. Copper Tube Mills implemented a new, higher list price sheet on 4/4. Supply risks amidst high demand forecasts are driving prices higher. Please call your United Pipe representative for more information or to place Copper Tube orders.
