Manchester Tank increases prices of select products

May 18, 2021 By    

Manchester Tank, a manufacturer of steel and aluminum low-pressure DOT cylinders and ASME pressure vessels, increased the prices of various products amid rising steel prices.

The increased prices are applicable with all new orders on or after May 14 or as contracts allow, the company says.

Twenty-pound portable gas grill cylinders will increase 22 percent, while DOT and ASME steel propane cylinders – including steel forklift, RV OEM tanks and 30-40-100-420-pound vertical LP cylinders – will increase up to 18 percent.

Air receivers will increase 12.5 percent, fire suppression cylinders will increase 12 percent and refillable refrigerant cylinders will increase 12 percent.

In addition, all horizontal domestic propane tanks for aboveground, underground and AG-UG applications will increase 11 percent, and aluminum forklift cylinders will increase 10 percent.

“Tanks and cylinder input costs such as steel, aluminum, components, labor, transportation, consumables and related services continue to rise rapidly,” says Brendan Dillmann, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Manchester Tank. “In particular, the cost of metals such as coil steel, plate steel, aluminum and brass continue to increase at unprecedented levels. We will continue to monitor our input costs closely and adjust prices for impacted product families as needed going forward.”
