Century Refrigeration announced a price increase due to the fluctuating cost of raw materials.  

Raw materials price increases are forcing Century Refrigeration to hike prices 6 percent to 8 percent.

In the last year, copper and aluminum costs have risen to a level that they cannot be contained with cost savings in other areas, such as new tooling and automation, officials said.

“Despite these initial price increases, we are committed to keeping our customer’s total cost of ownership to a minimum. Century equipment is designed to reduce installation, maintenance, and utility costs throughout the lifetime of the system,” said Kevin Trowhill, vice president of sales for Century Refrigeration.

Century Refrigeration is a division of RAE Corp.
