Garage Door Corporation has received price increase notices from several of its suppliers. Amarr an Entrematic company has announced a significant price increase effective 01/26/2018. Amarr's price Increase is 3.0% on all residential and commercial sectional garage doors and parts.This means any special order placed after the first week of January 2018 or stock garage door order not picked up by 01/25/2018 will be subject to the higher pricing.
Per their dealer memo:
###
Entrematic strives to reduce our costs with continuous improvements but due to the increasing cost of raw materials, labor, health care, rent and transportation, Entrematic will implement a 6% price increase on all Factory Direct and Door Center orders early next year. Orders received after January 26, 2018 will have increases as noted below:
3% Price Increase on:
Amarr® residential and commercial sectional doors, sections, parts, options and accessories,
Amarr commercial rolling sheet doors, and
Amarr commercial rolling slat doors and grilles;
3-4% Price Increase on:
LiftMaster® residential, commercial and gate operators, parts & accessories;
No Price Increase on:
Amarr and Linear® residential, commercial and gate operators, parts & accessories; and 3% non-electronic order surcharge (bringing the total price increase to 6%) will apply to all orders NOT placed through OnSite, Express or Compass (our new commercial online ordering system available January 2018) beginning March 1, 2018. Orders for Amarr commercial rolling sheet doors, slat doors and grilles are excluded from this surcharge.
For all orders placed prior to January 26, 2018, current published lead times apply.
### Amarr’s last increase was 6.8% effective 04/24/2017. Source is the Dealer Memo dated 12/08/2017 by Lyle Symons who is VP of Sales and Marketing, Entrematic (Amarr).

Amarr is citing material costs, insulation material costs and glass costs as the reasons to need the price increase. We will honor proposals written prior to the manufacturers price increase for the time indicated at the bottom of the proposal (usually 45 days). Please contact us with any questions about how this may effect a proposal we have provided for your project.

Garage Door Corporation is still making pricing adjustments but expects to pass along most of this price increase. This will affect garage doors & parts sold in the Chicago, IL area as well as out of area requests. Please check our website at www.gdcorp.com for further details.
