Good morning valued XXXX customers!
We have received word of an imminent price increase on glass as announced by the glass manufacturers. The increase in pricing to the glass fabricators such as XXXXXX, will be in the 8 to 14% range, depending upon the product. We will have no choice but to pass a portion of the increase, approximately 7 to 8%, on to our customers. There is a ‘window of opportunity’ for you to place new orders at this time, before the increase takes effect, which, we are told, will be on or about August 16, 2010.
Please check your inventories, upcoming requirements, etc. and let us know as quickly as possible what items you will be needing so as to beat the price increase deadline. If you have any questions, please let us know.
