As a result of the ongoing increases we all are seeing in the costs of raw materials, finished goods, labor, and transportation, as well as the continuing disruptions in the global supply chain, brought on by the pandemic and tensions abroad, Edmund A. Gray Company finds it necessary to implement the following pricing changes, effective June 6, 2022.

As with previous changes, we have carefully considered these numbers and continue to share in the burden of an increase by absorbing some of it. With this in mind, we reserve the right to limit order volume based on historic purchasing patterns.
New spreadsheet versions of the list price sheets will be available for download soon from the EAGray website at eagray.com. PDF versions will follow. Please contact your local EAGray Sales Rep or our offices directly, should you have any questions or require additional info.
Edmund A. Gray Company remains dedicated to providing our valued customers with quality, service, and competitive pricing. On behalf of all Edmund A. Gray Company employees, we thank you for your continued support.

The year 2022 has certainly started off more turbulent than any of us planned. The multitude of cost increases that have continued (labor, utilities, raw materials, finished goods, and transportation) combined with higher than expected spikes in inflation, and oil & gas prices have resulted in Edmund A. Gray Company needing to implement immediate changes to our freight policies.
The cost of shipping and delivering goods has increased at a disproportionately greater level than many of the other costs we all incur. Therefore, the following two changes have been scheduled for implementation as of Monday, March 14, 2022.
First, we are increasing the target level to receive FFA (Full Freight Allowed) to $1500 Net, for deliveries within California, Arizona, and Southern Nevada. Deliveries to other locations will adjust proportionately to this increase. Our new FFA levels are at the low-end of, but in-line with, published ‘industry peer’ freight allowances.
Second, we are temporarily adding a fuel surcharge of 2-1/2% of the value of the order, to prepaid shipments up to $10,000. Orders above that value will have reduced fuel surcharges.
Orders that do not meet FFA levels, will continue to be shipped as they have been.
These changes are intended to to be temporary, and we will continue to monitor market conditions and reevaluate them should anything change that could allow us to return to lower levels or eliminate the surcharges completely.
Again, these changes have been scheduled for implementation as of Monday, March 14, 2022.
Please contact your sales rep or our offices directly should you have any questions about these changes.
We appreciate your continued support of Edmund A. Gray Company, and value your business.
Out of an abundance of caution for our staff and their families, Edmund A. Gray Company has made the decision to move to a hybrid work setup in our offices for the next two weeks.
In our factory and warehouse as well, we are scaling back production slightly, to allow for a safer, more comfortable environment for our staff during our (now multi-day) annual inventory,
We will be monitoring email and support tickets, and responding to urgent requests.
We are encouraging email communication for the next two weeks and NOT phone calls, as those may go unanswered at various times of the day.
We expect to resume normal staffing and operation as of January 10, 2022.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Stay safe out there….We wish you all a safe, healthy, and Happy New Year!
