Unilin raises prices on Columbia, Century wood products

Home News Unilin raises prices on Columbia, Century wood products

Dallas—“Although Unilin, the parent company of Columbia and Century hardwood, continues to take steps to mitigate the impact of increased costs, raw material costs have continued to rise on select lumber and veneer species,” said Shane Calloway, vice president of North American independent distribution sales for Unilin. “The combination of an improving economy and less than ideal logging conditions continues to pressure availability leading to increased demand.

“Unfortunately,” he added, “the cost increases continue to outpace our productivity initiatives. As a result, Columbia and Century will be increasing selling prices on certain solid & engineered hardwood flooring. These increases will be effective with all orders and shipments made on or after Sept. 30.”

“Unilin is very grateful for the loyalty and support of our distributors and retailers,” concluded Calloway. “We remain committed to providing them with the finest service and highest quality products.”
