Surcharges for branded products

Window Ware has received notification that a number of its respected brand suppliers have reluctantly issued a temporary surcharge due to the recent devaluation of the GBP post-Brexit.

We fully appreciate that our customers need to be competitive and that times are difficult, however with many products purchased in either US dollars, or Euros, unfortunately we are left with no choice but to pass these surcharges onto our customers. These changes will come into effect for all deliveries on or after 15th September 2016.

Window Ware will review each brand’s surcharge percentage each calendar month, and we will publish the current surcharge percentages, along with a rolling three-month history on this page. Any changes in the surcharge amounts will be adjusted on the 1st of each month.

For complete clarity, all prices you see on our site will include the current surcharge amount. Please note that the increases shown below are percentage increases on the original pre-surcharge costs. Effective 15th January 2018 the MACO currency surcharge is reducing to 6.1% and will be a material surcharge. The surcharge amounts from the 1st November to present are as follows:

Current Surcharge
Carlisle Brass 9% 9% 9%
Delta 11% 11% 11%
Eurolite 6% 6% 6%
