Price Adjustment Effective April 9


Rising raw-material costs have prompted most major and independent lubricant companies, including ExxonMobil*, Castrol*, Chevron* and Shell*, to announce 4-10 percent price increases effective in February and March. These rising costs also affect AMSOIL, requiring us to implement an average price increase of 3-6 percent in the U.S. and Canada effective April 9, 2018. Commission credits will be increased accordingly.

Canadian Environmental Fees
Additionally, we are changing the way we are handling environmental handling fees in Canada. Effective April 9, the fees will no longer appear as a separate line item on AMSOIL invoices. We will continue to fund the recycling programs for all of Canada as a service to you and our mutual customers.

Availability of Printed Materials
Updated pricing information is available in the Product Pricing Interface in the Dealer and Account Zones.  To access pricing effective April 9, select a product type in the menu, then select “Future Pricing.” The AMSOIL Wholesale Price List (G3500, G8500) will be available in all distribution centers approximately March 9. The AMSOIL Retail Catalog (G100, G300) and all market catalogs (Professionals [G3469, G3474], Powersports & Racing [G3511, G3512], Retail Program [G3520, G3521] and Automotive [G3549, G3550]) will be available with updated pricing in early April. Watch the Dealer Zone for announcements of availability. We will notify your retail and commercial accounts of the price adjustment and provide a Wholesale Price List with the March Service Line; we encourage you to follow up with them in person as well.

P.C. Pricing
To facilitate further promotion of the Preferred Customer Program and assist you in making quotes for customers, Preferred Customer pricing is being added alongside full catalog retail pricing in all customer-facing catalogs. The April 2018 editions of the AMSOIL Retail Catalog (G100, G300), Powersports & Racing Catalog (G3511, G3512) and Automotive Catalog (G3549, G3550) will contain both sets of pricing.
