BendPak announces price stabilization!

Sept. 27, 2011

There will be no price increases at BendPak Inc. at least through mid-2012, according to Jeff Kritzer, senior vice president of sales and marketing. That applies to both BendPak and Ranger products.

The company credits manufacturing efficiencies with easing the rise in raw materials and manufacturing costs. BendPak’s capabilities and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes at its new 480,000-square-foot facility allows for:

* leaner and more efficient manufacturing,

* the ability to forge improved cost-saving relationships with suppliers, and

* increased control over how they conduct their global business.

“We made a promise early this year that we would not let global inflation woes force us to raise prices," says Kritzer. "We feel for our customers who are having a tough time in this economy. It’s our way of giving back and thanking them for their years of loyalty."

BendPak has not raised prices since the third quarter of 2010, according to President Don Henthorn. "This should help our dealers grow their business and ease the financial crunch that many end-users are strapped with right now. We feel their pain and are taking a stand to give back to our customers, many of whom have supported us for over three decades."
