Dear Valued Customers:
At Ply Gem Windows we continue to be committed to creating value in the markets we
serve through our products and services. We appreciate your support, value our
partnerships and thank you for your business.
Our goal remains to produce high quality products at competitive prices which are
delivered on-time and complete. As our industry continues to recover, we are
experiencing price increases in the majority of our raw materials, components and labor
associated with the production and delivery of our products. Although we continually
strive to improve productivity and reduce costs, we have not been able to offset all of
these increases.
Therefore, we will be implementing a 6–15% price increase effective with all orders
received or released after the close of business on Friday, January 2, 2015. This variable
price increase will be based on product line, market and current pricing levels. Our
objective is to realign our pricing with our costs and service commitments. Specific
pricing adjustments by product, location and account will be available by the middle of
October and will be communicated by your Ply Gem Windows Sales Representative.
The price increase will occur via a multiplier or “On-Factor” change; list prices will
remain the same. This may result in small variations from the above percentage increases
due to rounding of the multipliers.
We appreciate your ongoing commitment to Ply Gem Windows and we look forward to
working with you to strengthen our collective position in the market.
If you have any questions please contact your sales or customer service representative.
Eric Spence
Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing
