August Masterflux Pricing Increase (2011)

As of August 2011, Tecumseh announced a price increase for Masterflux®
SIERRA and ALPINE series compressor and condensing units and REVOLT will be adjusting our prices to reflect the increased costs from our supplier. SIERRA and
ALPINE compressors utilize brushless DC (i.e., BLDC) compressor motors
with rare earth magnets, NeFeB. The cost of rare earth magnets has
risen to unprecedented levels due to export quotas, duties, and
restrictions imposed by the Chinese government. The majority of the
global consumption of rare earth materials is sourced from China. As
such, associated compressor costs have risen significantly.

05/08/2013: Update: this price increase is no longer valid starting 08/01/2013
