Reading Truck Body says the company will institute what it called a “modest price increase” for 2014, the first increase in two years.
Changes will go into effect Jan. 1, 2014. Any orders and quote requests accepted prior to that date will be priced at 2013 rates.
The company says primary factors leading to the new pricing structure were the increasing costs of raw materials and component parts.
“Due to economic conditions early last year, we felt compelled to assist our customers through the tough times and hold pricing, but we cannot continue on that path at this point,” says Craig Bonham, Vice President-Sales, says. “We are announcing this pricing change early to encouraging customers to plan ahead and order in 2013 at the current rates.”
