As you know, the challenging operating environment coupled with strong consumer demand continues to apply significant pressure on the cost of raw materials, labor, and transportation. These pressures are impacting nearly every industry, and ours is no exception as we continue to absorb permanent increases throughout our operations.
Effective Feb. 1, 2022, a 5% price increase will be added to all products in the form of a line-item surcharge. The 5% surcharge will be visible to you in DirectConnect® and the Mobile Selling App and listed separately on each invoice. This surcharge approach is a way to bridge the gap between Feb. 1 and the 2022 Price & Reference Guide effective date.
As always, we very much appreciate your business and partnership.
