Market Update – September 3, 2021

Cornerstone Brands Retracts 5% “Freight Surcharge” In Lieu of 8% Increase
Cornerstone’s Memo to Customers:

As you know, we communicated earlier this week our need to levy a 5% freight surcharge on all shipments effective on Monday, August 30th.  However, after listening to your feedback and recognizing the strain this would place on your business and customer relationships, we have made the decision to change the surcharge to a price increase.

We will be instituting an eight percent (8%) price increase on all products effective with orders received after September 10, 2021.

National Gypsum Set to Implement Increase Next Month
Effective with shipments on and after Monday, October 4, 2021, all ProForm Interior finishing products will be subject to a price increase. The amount of the increase has not yet been disclosed by National.
