New Steel Quotation Policies

To our valued customers,

The majority of our steel vendors have announced new quotation policies to reflect those of other commodity products such as lumber, asphalt and heavy steel. Their new policies will change the steel stud job pricing from a no-minimum quantity no-maximum quotation product segment to a contract based product group with written agreements from all parties, manufacturer, distributor and contractor. We believe our customers are very well versed in contract language and look forward to working with you on a higher level once these new policies take hold.

We are committed to keeping you up to speed with accurate information while providing you with the best products, service and competitive prices in the industry. The following policies will be in effect with all new job quotes after June 30th, 2011.

Products           Effective Date
Steel Stud Minimum Quote     200,000 LBS     July 1, 2011
Steel Stud Maximum Job Length     180 Days     July 1, 2011
Steel Stud Pricing After 180 Days     Market Price     July 1, 2011
Steel Stud Job Award Maximum     30 Days     July 1, 2011


Please communicate closely with your sales representative or branch manager on any upcoming projects you may have.

We want to help you remain competitive and profitable. Please do not hesitate to call us should you have any questions or concerns.

We thank you for your business and appreciate the opportunity to serve you and your staff.
