Highland Products Group to Lower Aluminum Bleachers Pricing Through End of 2008

Despite rapidly escalating energy and raw materials prices to date in 2008, Highland Products Group has decided to lower pricing for aluminum bleachers with 5 or more rows starting May 15, 2008.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) May 6, 2008 -- With governmental and educational budgets coming under increased strain from economic slowdown, Highland Products Group has decided to lower its current pricing for 5 to 15 row bleachers despite significant price increases from other industry participants.

"Through efficiency initiatives in our manufacturing and distribution network undertaken a year ago, we have been able to get out in front of this problem of rapidly accelerating energy and commodity costs, and pass these savings along to our aluminum bleachers clients. Even federal, state and local governmental agencies are feeling the pinch," said Christopher George, Chief Executive Officer of Highland Products Group.

"We were almost priced out of the market for new aluminum bleachers this year, since even a small system can run upwards of $15,000. By holding 2007 pricing, Highland enabled us to make a purchase we might have had to defer until 2009," said Henry Wieniewitz of Biloxi High School in Biloxi, Mississippi. Biloxi High School received a 10 x 21 row aluminum bleacher system complete with installation services from Highland Products Group in January, 2008.

Highland's full product line of commercial site furnishings including benches, trash receptacles, picnic tables and bike racks will be on display from May 17 to May 21 at the ICSC Spring Conference in Las Vegas, NV.
