NEW YORK Revere Copper
Products Inc. will increase its fabrication prices by 6 percent
on all copper and copper alloy products effective with new
orders July 1.
"The increase is required to
offset very challenging conditions brought on by rising costs
of labor, health care, utilities, transportation, supplies and
services at our Rome, N.Y., plant," the company said May
The move follows similar
increases of 6 percent by Louisville, Ky.-based Olin Brass
Inc., a subsidiary of Global Brass & Copper Holdings Inc.,
at the start of the month (
amm.com, May 1) and Buffalo, N.Y.-based Aurubis
Buffalo Inc. at the end of April (
amm.com, April 23).
