IMERYS to Increase Price for GCC in Asia Pacific Region

Nov. 6, 2007 - IMERYS Performance Minerals & Pigments Asia Pacific said it will increase prices on all ground calcium carbonate (GCC) products by an average of 15% with effect from December 1, 2007, as contracts allow.

The increase will apply to marble chips and all associated processed products, including GCC powders and slurry, throughout the Asia Pacific region, IMERYS said.

Significant cost pressures in mining, local logistics, chemicals and ocean freight are key drivers for the latest round of price increases, IMERYS added.
