Scuba Compressor pricing
I have been delivering more and more scuba compressors to yacht owners and shipyards and the quality of the systems is really going up while the pricing has held pretty consistent for several years.
However, I just got word that, in the USA, ColtriSub is going to be having an 11% price increase October 1st. The reasoning given is that there hasn't been a price adjustment since 2009 and there has been an increase in spread between the Dollar and the Euro.
I have asked Bauer if there is going to be a new price at DEMA (the scuba diving trade show) or there abouts and I got no feedback. I expect that it might happen there as well as they have surprised me in the past.
If you are thinking about a new compressor, it may save you some to get a deposit on one soon to avoid the increases.
So far, none of the hardware manufacturers have announced new pricing so that should still be safe for now.
