Holliday Pigments Announces Price Increase in the Asia Pacific Region

Published on 2006-12-29. Author : SpecialChem

Holliday Pigments, the world's largest manufacturer of ultramarine pigments, has announced a price increase of up to 30% across all their product ranges, in the Asia Pacific region from January 2007.

The company cites rising energy and manufacturing costs as well as new environmental regulations that have constrained capacity, as the key reasons behind the increase. Worldwide demand for technical ultramarine blue pigments continues to rise and capacity has been outstripped in 2006.

Said Steve Bell, Global Sales & Marketing Director for Holliday Pigments, "As the leading ultramarine pigment supplier in the world, we are committed to continued investment to ensure the best quality product reaches our customers. The escalation in raw materials and manufacturing costs, coupled with recent capital investments to meet tough environmental controls mean we can no longer sustain current price levels."

Holliday Pigments is the world's number one manufacturer of ultramarine blue pigments. As market leader it has over 50% of the world market for technical quality ultramarine pigments. Over 120 years of manufacture has enabled the company to establish an enviable reputation as leaders in ultramarine technology and experts in the use of ultramarines in a wide variety of end applications. Environmentally conscious, Holliday Pigments' products have been reclassified as non hazardous to waters by the Commission for Evaluation of Substances Hazardous to Waters. Exporting to over 80 countries, its service is supported by dedicated teams in customer and technical service at its factories in Hull (UK), Comines (France) and via the commercial offices in Malaysia, China and the USA. Available in English, Spanish, French and Mandarin.
