Price Increases for July

Price Increase AlertAfter a short reprieve in copper prices, they have begun rising again in the past two months.  The costs of raw materials like FEP, PVC, Polyolefins and Thermosets still continue to rise at a steady rate. As a result, we are experiencing more price increases this month.  We have currently seen two price increases, from General Cable and Belden Cable.

  • General Cable’s 4-6% increase was effective July 11th, on all their portable cord, cordsets and industrial flex cable products.
  • Belden will increase select products 2-10% on August 1st.

Remember to check our Price Increase Survival Guide whenever you need tips on weathering these increases, and check our Bargain Bin often for deals on odd lengths.
