Nalco to Hike Price for All Water Services

Jan. 11, 2011 - Nalco announced that its Water and Process Services division is implementing a price increase for all water services industry segments, effective immediately or as contracts permit.

Pricing for most Nalco programs will increase between seven and 15 percent, depending on product mix. Price increases will vary by country and industry, driven by local cost increases and will supplement previously announced increases for the paper services segment which were effective Dec. 1 of last year, the company said.

The price hikes are the result of continued and significant escalation of energy and raw material costs, tightening availability of some raw materials and rising freight and personnel costs, Nalco said.
