Due to rising costs of both raw materials and freight, coupled with the lack of availability of PVC pipe products, PVC pipe mills have announced a 5% increase going into effect on Monday 2/7. We will hold current price levels through close of business Friday 2/4, and move to a new list price sheet dated 2/7, which will be available on our website that day. Please call your Merfish United representative for more information, or to place orders now.

Aluminum Conduit Increase
Due to continued supply tightness and rising costs of raw materials, electrical conduit manufacturers have announced a price increase of 12% on aluminum conduit products.
Aluminum costs are increasing due to rising demand, and global supply is tightening because of smelter closures and shipping bottlenecks. The U.S. is the world’s largest importer, and this expense is adding up for manufacturers. Read this article for more information.

The Volatile Copper Market
Copper remains volatile as global reserves and current demand fluctuate. Long term mining prospects could also strain supply as copper needs rise for future infrastructure projects. Read more about the copper market here, and here.
