2016-12-29
Coral Springs, FL – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, announces a price increase for some relays manufactured at its facility located in Coral Springs, Florida, USA. Increase will range from 5% to 40% depending upon material content, direct labor content, and volume of sales.

ABB continues to minimize the impact of increased costs to customers through cost reduction projects. However, the costs must be passed through to ensure ABB’s ability to serve our customers with the highest quality and service. ABB will continue to deliver the highest quality and value to our customers while remaining competitive in the market.

Some relay types will have a higher price increase than others due to cost of lower sales volumes and the continuation to manufacture legacy relays.

List price on these specific product lines will increase by the following amounts and will become effective on all orders beginning March 1, 2017

DPU2000R 10%
Ground Sensors 10%
Microshield O/C 20%

FT-1F Front Connected Switch 15%

Prices on outstanding negotiations will remain valid for orders placed by February 28, 2017. Existing blankets and agreements will remain valid until their expiration date, unless contacted by the factory. We are pleased to announce that at this time there is no price increase on the standard Flexitest (FT, FT19R) Test Switch, COM600, REA101, Electromechanical Relays, and the Relion® product family.
