Fuel Surcharge Out, Price Increase In

Industry sources have told DWM that PPG has sent out a letter stating that it is rescinding the $100 diesel fuel surcharge that was supposed to go into effect the beginning of this week and instead is raising glass prices 3 percent across the board.

AFG Industries Inc. sent out a letter dated last Friday that announced a 3-percent glass increase effective May 16.

The 3-percent increases match the action taken by Guardian Industries Corp. last month.

This leaves Pilkington North American as the only primary glass manufacturer that is currently scheduled to impose a diesel fuel surcharge. Its change is slated to go into effect the same day as the increases, May 16.
