Default Hoosier Profiles having a price increase next year

Joe Andrews mentioned that the metalshaping products have been falling off and he's going to have a price increase after January 1. He's developing some non-metalshaping products to keep the doors open.

Word to the wise if you're planning on buying some rollers or ??? in the near future.

Last year they announced they were calling it quits but things changed and business picked up.

He's found some non-metalshaping products to keep the doors open and still makes the metalshaping stuff. Over here prices raw material prices have gone way up. This is the reason for his price increase next year.

Materials prices have gone insane. I don't buy steel much anymore but a $2.50 2x4" stud is now $7.00. A $7.00 sheet of plywood is now $30.00. A friend who was planning on building a house this year cancelled his plans after the builder told him to expect a 25-50% price increase.
