L. M. Leinen, Ajax Director of Industrial Marketing, announced today that Ajax is increasing the prices of its steam engines. The amount of the increase is about 15% on all models.

Commenting on the action, Mr. Leinen said that the matter had been under study for some time and that the need for the increase was a direct consequence of economic forces beyond Ajax control and the inflationary price increase made by many suppliers. He also said that such action would be the first general increase for Ajax steam engines in over fifty years.
