I've recently had lots of price increases from suppliers, in the region of 10-30%!! I was told by one supplier that they had not increased there prices for 4 years. I though about this later and since quite a bit of the equipment is from the USA I should have asked why they didn't reduce the prices when the £ was so high against the dollar. Reason: they were making more money off us installers, that's why!!!! I remember getting some equipment from an installer I knew in the states at the beginning of last year and he made a profit selling it to me at 50% cheaper than UK trade. I paid the import taxes and still it was 40% cheaper than suppliers trade prices. This country is a joke.
