Dear Valued Pentair Foodservice Partner,
In April, we announced a 7% freight/energy/transportation surcharge in response to escalating inflationary pressures. It was always our plan and hope that these increases would be temporary and revert to “normal” price levels in a short time. However, we have not seen these decreases materialize for our costs, nor do we see any relief to this higher cost position in the foreseeable future.
Effective October 31, 2022, we are eliminating the 7% Energy Surcharge and will be converting this into a 7% list price increase. The net effect of this change will be zero to what you have paid since the implementation of the surcharge. We understand that the surcharge was difficult to manage, and we hope that the transition to price will be easier to manage moving forward for all parties.
Please note that a small number of low-volume SKUs will be seeing an additional increase in price. Additional communication will go out to customers purchasing those items.
You are an important part of our promise to make the most of life’s essential resources. Thank you for your continued support of Pentair brands and products amid these turbulent economic times. Your business remains vitally important to us!
