Universal Air Filter (UAF), a Filtration Group company, today announced a price increase for customers in all of its segments. Pricing for most UAF products and programs will increase globally between 11 and 15 percent, varying by product specifications and complexity. This price increase will be effective April 1, 2020.
This price adjustment is driven by notable increases in key raw material costs combined with global inflationary factors in labor and freight and increased impact of regulatory requirements. UAF sales personnel will be available to discuss the impact of these increases.
“We have been able to partially offset cost increases over the past 8 years through a disciplined productivity improvement process. Unfortunately, costs continue to rise,” said Jim Chew, President, Universal Air Filter. “We are continuing to take steps to optimize our cost structure and make our operations more efficient, but price increases are necessary to ensure our ability to fund product innovation and engineering expertise that continually deliver value to our customers.”
This price increase will become effective for all orders received on or after April 1, 2020. UAF continues to work with our raw material vendors to offer the highest quality products at the lowest costs possible. We are happy to receive and accept orders at current pricing through April 1, 2020. If you have received a quote in 2020, please place your order before April 1, 2020, so the price can be honored. If you have your demand forecast for the remainder of 2020, we would be glad to review it with you in order to help you lock in existing prices ahead of the price increase.
Please contact our sales office to request a new quote on the parts we are supplying to your company.
We sincerely appreciate your business and will continue to manufacture to ISO 9001 quality standards and ship on spec…on time…every time! Filtration Group and Universal Air Filter are committed to making the world safer, healthier and more productive.
