News International-French

19 Sep 2013

AOC, LLC has announced a price increase of US$0.06/lb for all products shipped to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America on or after October 1, 2013.

This action is prompted by significant increases in raw material costs.  AOC has experienced steady increases since late July.  Recently, feedstocks such as benzene, butane, and mixed xylenes, among others, are increasing as part of their Fall seasonality.  Energy prices have also risen substantially in the last two weeks, with oil regaining the highs of earlier this year.  
AOC’S global purchasing resources continue to work with suppliers to manage costs and meet customers’ needs.
