Price increases

Due to sharp price increases of fuel and raw materials over a short period of time, costs related to automotive glass manufacturing and distribution have rapidly increased.

Costs of most raw materials including: raw glass, interlayer vinyl and energy are dramatically increasing and can no longer be absorbed by internal efforts only. Therefore AGC Automotive Replacement Glass will raise prices on all new orders, an average of 6.5% effective August 1st 2008. In addition AGC will increase the delivery charge to $100 per stop. AGC will continue to seek new innovative ways to reduce costs and improve the quality of our products and services.
