AOC announces price increase for Americas

News International-French

15 Mar 2011

The company will increase prices on all products for the United States, Canada and for all shipments to, from and within Mexico, Latin America, South America and the Caribbean.

AOC, LLC will increase prices on all products for the United States and Canada with shipments on and after April, 11, 2011.

 

The supply of several raw materials such as Propylene Glycol, Maleic Anhydride and Epoxy, among others, has been affected by unplanned outages which coupled with improved demand is compounding supply issues and resulting in raw material increases.

 

Also, geopolitical events in North Africa and the Middle East show no abatement for raw materials, therefore it is necessary for AOC to implement the following price increases by product type for the USA and Canadian markets:                                              

 

 

 

USA   

Canada

Unsaturated Polyester Resins gel coats, pigments and additives

 

$0.06/lb

CND$0.13/Kg

 

Vinyl Ester Resins

 

$0.08/lb

CND$0.175/Kg

Brominated UPR’s and

Fire retardant VE’s

$0.12/lb

CND$0.265/Kg

 

 

During these uncertain times, AOC continues to be well positioned to take care of our customer’s needs.

 

  

AOC, LLC also announced a price increase for all products, including polyester resins, vinyl ester resins, gel coats and pigments in the amount of US$0.07 per pound for all shipments to, from and within Mexico, Latin America, South America and the Caribbean. The implementation date for the increase is for all shipments on and after April 7, 2011.

 

The price increase results from higher raw material costs. The events and expanding political unrest in the Middle East are increasing all raw materials derived from crude oil. AOC’s global purchasing team is exhausting all resources looking for both lower costs and guaranteed supply.
