ABB Power Products Medium Voltage to Increase Distribution Component Pricing

2011-04-28 - ABB Inc. announces a general price increase averaging 8% on all cutout, switch, and fuse products manufactured in the Pinetops, NC, facility. Increases on individual items will range from 6% to 10%, depending upon the specific product.

ABB will apply this price increase to all new quotations after May 16, 2011. ABB will honor the prices on all existing orders and quotations through their validity date.

The ABB facility in Pinetops, NC, provides various products for use in power distribution. These products include instrument transformers, fused and solid blade cutouts, disconnect and bypass switches, capacitor bank fuses, and the AutoLink sectionalizer.

As you may already know, many costs are rising that impact not just the materials of which the product is manufactured from, but also the processes necessary to manufacture the product and ensure on-time delivery to our respective customers. We've held off as long as possible, but have found our volume has reached a point where it is necessary to offset the increased costs of doing business with a modest price increase. The much needed increase will allow us to continue to focus on the highest quality products, ensure quality in-house customer service, maintain the shortest lead times in the market place, and fulfill emergency orders at time of need. Efforts are always in place to diversify our supplier portfolio, and we are seeking new innovations that will allow us to better manage and work around these increasing costs.

The following price increases will become effective on May 16, 2011:

      Cutouts 6 - 10%
      Disconnect Switches 6%
      Capacitor Fuses 6%
Customers will be notified separately of the specific impact to them. Please contact your local ABB representative with any questions.
