Holliday Pigments Announces Global Price Increase

Published on 2006-08-24. Author : SpecialChem

Ultramarine pigment manufacture is highly intensive in terms of energy (gas and electricity) usage. Over the past two years prices have been increasing dramatically without being passed on to the user.

Holliday Pigments has invested heavily over this period in new equipment to provide a secure and environmentally friendly future for ultramarine users as well as continually looking at improving our efficiency without loss of quality and service.

Whilst these have had small beneficial effects on our business virtually all cost increases have had to be absorbed. Further energy prices increases in 2006 of 70% (with further increases forecast) and raw material price increases of upto 17% confirm that the overall cost situation is not sustainable without external cost recovery.

It is our intention to raise Ultramarine Blue, Violet, Pink and Manganese Violet pigments prices with immediate effect. Your local representative will be in touch to discuss this with you.
