PRLog - May 3, 2010 - Electrical wire and cable can be made with a couple different commodities such as copper and aluminum. Each can also be tin coated or silver plated depending on the temperature and voltage specifications it needs to meet.
Copper is listed and sold by the pound and currently sits at about 3.31/lb. Recently it reached as high as 3.85/lb and in the past it has been over 4.00/lb. Since the price of copper affects all of the inventory we have and the pricing we give to customers we must keep a close eye on it to make sure of 2 things: 1) We don't lose money on an order and 2) We are still competitive on pricing.

We don't expect our customers to know when copper goes up and down so we update our website every 2 weeks to not only show the up's and down's but to show the current price of copper. This will show that we aren't using the fluctuating copper pricing to our advantage by using it as an excuse for a high price that was given.
WesBell believes they can be competitive on pricing with anyone else in the market because we purchase from the biggest players in the game; Southwire and General Cable. Not only do they offer the best products, but the best pricing as well. So we offer our best price upfront and honest because we feel we can gain customers doing so.
