Again with the Foam Prices!? : Howards Custom Upholstery

Again with the Foam Prices!?

by Tavy at Howard's on 06/16/11

 People always ask me, "Why are foam prices so expensive?" and I always tell them that foam is a petroleum based product and as a result rises with the price of oil.  I would say it fluctuates with the price of oil, but I have never actually seen the price go down, so "rises with the price of oil" is more accurate.  Recently we at Howard's Upholstery received a letter from one of our foam providers stating the price of foam will go up 9% after July 1, 2011.  Not unreasonable, unless we had just received a letter last year stating the prices would go up 12%.  Together that is a 21% increase in foam prices in the last year. Outrageous.  I included the recent letter on the top of this entry so that our customers can see that we are not raising foam prices arbitrarily, but rather the foam companies are raising prices.  I cannot speak for their reasons, I can only say that this increase is outrageous, and a burden to our customers, especially during these economic times.
