Looks like Samuel Strapping Systems are pushing another price increase on steel strapping.
Effective April 25, 2016 the Samuel Packaging Group will be increasing prices on steel strapping and related product by 5.5%. Orders placed after April 19th will be processed and the new price level.
Will watch and see if other steel strap suppliers increase pricing. As of April 15th I have not seen increase from other vendors on steel strapping.
