Omya to Increase Price for GCC in North America
June 2, 2008 - Omya Inc. has announced a price increase of 8-10%, depending on grade, for all ground calcium carbonate grades sold to the North American paper industry.
The increase includes products used for both filling and coating applications, Omya said.
Omya noted that costs for energy, dispersants, biocides, freight and mining have risen at an alarming rate, making the price hike necessary to recover a portion of these increased costs.
