Below is a list of upcoming price increases being implemented by mills. Please call your Merfish United representative for more information or to place orders.

Threaded Rod Increase Possible in August:
Like other commodity pipe products and building materials, Threaded rod has not been immune to the current supply limitations in the market. Because of rising raw materials cost, there may be a price increase sometime in August.
