Current News & Updates

Price increases have become an annual event.  The question isn’t IF prices will go up but when and by how much.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could skip a year?   Well GFS has done just that!  By taking a very granular approach to pricing, some products have actually decreased in cost.  Scroll down to get the details.

AFX, on the other hand, took a very different approach to correct out of control FedEx addon costs.  Free shipping for less than 10 boxes has been eliminated.  Due to this development, we can no longer offer single boxes at a competitive price (not even close).  Therefore, we must drop this quantity from our store.  We will continue to offer free shipping and provide even better quantity discounts starting at 10 boxes.

 There are no known back-orders at this time.  Lead times are running as expected with 3-5 business days average lead for most products and up to 1-2 weeks for most non-stock products.

If your order is time sensitive, shoot us an email to confirm the lead.  It may take up to 24 hours to get a lead time from the manufacturer (typically we can have an answer within the hour).

LEAD TIMES:  5/6/2024 Updates

Lead times are not set in stone.  They are the manufacturer’s best estimate.  With that said, here are current average leads for the most popular products.

  • Accordions:  Standard leads run 24 hrs to 1 week average.
  • GFS Poly:  unavailable; replaced with The Wave (some sizes may still be in stock!  Ask us if interested.)
  • XFP bag filters:  typically stocked, 3-5 business days; large quantities may take up to 2 weeks.  High demand item!  
  • Wave:  pads are 2-3 days, rolls may run up to 2 weeks (standard leads).
  • Floor paper:  average lead is typically 1-2 weeks but could extend to 3 weeks for all base weights & sizes.  Note that stocked sizes ship in 72 hrs.  Stock varies from day to day.  Most ship within the week.

Seriously, it’s worth adding a filter support if that means you can get a better filter that lasts longer, costs less, and is readily available.

possible delays in LTL deliveries LTL Delays


Getting an LTL carrier to show-up isn’t always as easy as scheduling the collection.  If the route doesn’t have a driver running it regularly, your cargo may have to sit a couple of days (and this could happen enroute as your cargo travels across the country). 

Once again, plan ahead.  If you require LTL delivery, allow for enough lead to get it picked up and delivered.  *Note:  lead times provided indicate the time required for the manufacturer to have your order ready to be shipped.  LTL pick-ups have been increasingly difficult to get as of July, 2023.  

Be aware when ordering products requiring an LTL carrier that the driver may call to ensure someone is present to accept the delivery.  Answer the phone!  If you don’t answer the phone, the driver will not attempt delivery and the terminal may start charging fees to hold your property and/or return it to sender – either or both actions will ultimately cost more $$.
