Dallas – Unilin and Mohawk announced price increases last week.
“Unilin remains focused on delivering the quality products and strong service that customers expect from our brands,” said Shane Calloway, vice president of North American independent distribution sales for Unilin. “Unfortunately, lumber and raw material costs have outgrown our productivity initiatives,” said Calloway. “As a result, Unilin is announcing a 6% price increase on solid and select engineered hardwood products in the Columbia and Century hardwood lines, effective January 1, 2013.”
Mohawk announced it will raise prices on solid and select engineered Mohawk brand hardwood products by 6%, effective December 21st. “Our company remains committed to providing innovative, market-driven products in conjunction with exceptional service,” said Bob Leahy, senior vice president of hard surfaces, Mohawk Industries.
