Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds, B-Line and Oil & Gas
price increase announcement
August 18, 2020

Dear valued partner,

Inflationary pressures continue to impact our business both in the cost of materials and logistics. Due to these factors, Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds, B-Line and Oil & Gas Group is announcing a price increase that will be effective October 19, 2020.

Commercial and Industrial product pricing will increase on average 3-5%. Actual increases will vary by product type and lifecycle. Please note, some products may change more or less than the general increase depending on material cost, volume or other factors, such as correction of errors.

Orders for immediate shipment placed before October 19, 2020, will be billed at current prices. Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds, B-Line and Oil & Gas Group retains the right to limit order quantities based upon historical ordering patterns.

Important notes:
Special Pricing Agreements (SPAs) and Into Stock Pricing (ITS) based upon Price Book in Effect (PIE) and utilizing product group and item discounts will reflect the new price levels effective October 19, 2020.

  • Non-PIE SPA agreements (firm pricing) will be updated to reflect this increase upon expiration.
  • All SPA agreements are being analyzed for opportunities to rationalize agreements based on low volume, profitability and redundant end-users.
  • Projects quoted after October 19, 2020, will reflect the new price levels; open quotations will be honored until the agreed upon expiration date.

We will be freezing all changes to Special Pricing Agreements and Into Stock Pricing between August 28 and October 19, 2020. We will continue to price new opportunities as normal during this time.

To assist you in notifying your customers and updating your systems, an electronic version of the Distributor (D1020 / D1020C) and Trade (T1020) price lists effective October 19, 2020, will be available no later than September 19, 2020.

  • Price lists for Crouse-Hinds series products will be posted here on My.Eaton.com (log into My.Eaton.com prior to clicking link).
  • B-Line series price books will be available at this link.
  • Updated pricing information will be communicated to Trade Services and the IDW by September 19, 2020.
  • Revised SPAs will be sent no later than September 19, 2020. The pricing in these documents will supersede pricing in all previous price documents.

Thank you for your business and continued support.
