Due to the recent significant increases in the costs of aluminum and copper, we find it necessary to cancel all Net Pricing Sheets, currently in the field. Until further notice, please contact your Priority Wire & Cable inside salesperson for pricing and all quoted pricing will be firm for one day at a time.
As soon as the pricing of aluminum and copper stabilizes to more consistent levels, we will issue new sheets.

Price Increase effective January 1, 2018
Due to the rise in commodity prices (copper, aluminum, steel and resins) as well as other cost factors we are initiating across the board price increases within the U.S. and Canada from 6 to 10% on our product lines effective immediately.
All indications point to sustained or continued increases in commodities as well as other costs leading us to believe that prices will go up and stay up.
