Oct. 30, 2018 - Omya has announced a price increase of 7-9% for its Calcium Carbonate products, depending on the grade, in the U.S. and Canada, effective January 1, 2019 or as customer contracts allow.

Omya said the price adjustment is due to significant cost pressures from escalating raw material, chemical, energy, transportation costs and overall inflation across all regions in 2018, which is expected to continue.

Omya is a global producer of industrial minerals — mainly fillers and pigments derived from calcium carbonate and dolomite — and a worldwide distributor of specialty chemicals. To learn more, please visit:
