Due to the rising costs and inflation, the price on some of my construction materials is going up next month and I am very unhappy about the changes.
For someone like myself, even a $1 cost rise can affect my business partially.
I use a great deal of rebar supplies and they all come from the same metal company. The metal company supplies me with PVC coated, stainless steel, and black annealed forming wire. I use the forming wire in a number of different construction projects. I have been in business with the metal company since the early part of last year. I have been purchasing the black annealed, stainless steel, and PVC coated forming wire from the same company for the past 3 years. This is honestly the first time that they have raised the prices of the American-made rebar tie wire. The American made rebar tie wire cost is going up on the 14 gauge, 16 gauge, and 19 gauge varieties. I will see cost inflation all over the place. I contacted the company to talk about different sales and promotions so we can keep my costs low. I haven’t heard back from the head of the business department yet, but I look forward to taking that call so we can come up with pricing that works for both of us. I understand I’m going to need to pay more, but surely there must be a way that we can agree on some changes instead of all of the changes. The cost of iron forming wire doesn’t have to break the bank.
