Price Increase

Saturday, March 11, 2023

UPDATE 3/29/23: We were able to negotiate with our rod manufacture and they are holding our steel rod prices until at least May.  Chain link fence prices will remain the same as the catalog prices.  No increase at this time.  Stay tuned for other updates.  


To our valued customers, 

After a steady decline of steel prices things have begun to reverse.  Scrap steel prices are on the rise and business has begun to increase for the coming Spring season. 

Pipe and tubing prices have increased over 10% in the matter of one week.  Steel rod prices increased 7% on all new orders immediately.  This announcement was made at 8:00 pm on Friday, March 10th. 

We have been forced to increase the price of all tubing, SS20, SS40, and Domestic Schedule 40 (both vinyl coated & galvanized) by 10%.  Import Schedule 40 prices have not changed.

We will also increase the price of chain link fence by 6% on March 15th, 2023.   These are all based on our 2023 Wholesale Catalog which is downloadable at

We will keep you updated to these price changes as they develop.  If you have any questions you can reach me at

Thank you again for you support,

Bill Peterson
