Guardian Industries Alerts Customers of Price
Increase

June 22, 2010

In a recent letter, Martin Powell, vice president of sales and marketing for Guardian Industries, alerted customers of an 11-percent price increase, which took effect June 14.

In the letter Powell states, “The architectural and residential flat glass industry continues to experience higher costs for the materials and services used in manufacturing high quality float glass. Guardian has worked diligently to increase the efficiency of our manufacturing and administrative processes in an effort to offset the increased costs. We have made great strides in becoming a more efficient supplier, but find increases in our costs are outpacing our ability to improve our process efficiencies.”

The price increase affects the following products:

  • CrystalGray®;
  • PrivaGuard (dark gray);
  • SMG III (dark green);
  • Green;
  • Bronze; and
  • Gray.
