Addressing Pricing Issues 3/8/2021

Dear Valued Dealer,

Essco appreciates your business and continued support.  We are continually working on new ways to provide you with the highest quality of products and service. 

Over the last year Essco has fought to provide our dealer base with a differentiated product offering relevant to the times, over and above the traditional vac channel assortment.  We also fought to maintain pricing despite the ever-growing impact on escalating freight costs.  These costs are being passed down to us from our vendors, both import and domestic.  This freight impact will be felt not only on vacuum related products for our industry, but on other everyday products that we all buy. 

We are doing our best to minimize and/or delay these increases that have already been passed along to Essco.  But despite our best efforts to control these escalating costs, the impact has forced us to adjust pricing on select items effective March 15th.  A few of the vendors/brands that will be affected initially are Ametek, DVC, ReadiVac, and Stain-X.

Over the next few months until freight costs begin to stabilize, you may see additional increases impacting select vendors/brands.  We hope this advance notification will allow you the necessary time to pre-plan your purchases of essential everyday items like consumables, and others.  We will continue to closely monitor this situation for any changes or adjustments to the cost.

We appreciate your continued support and remain a committed partner in the success of your business.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your sales rep, or call 800-321-2664 for assistance in addressing your question.

Thank you for your support,
