Andrew Corp., a manufacturer of communications systems and products, is implementing additional pricing actions to counteract the ongoing, dramatic increase in the costs of raw materials, especially copper, used in manufacturing its cable products.

Effective May 1, Andrew will increase the previously implemented surcharge assessed on its Heliax and Radiax products.

In addition, the company on June 1 will expand the use of surcharges to include all cable products, such as connectors, assemblies, and accessories, which utilize these raw materials. These surcharges will be adjusted periodically as the market rate of copper fluctuates.
