Today we are announcing a price increase for our high-performing industrial calcium carbonate products. The price increase does not apply to Huber’s food and USP calcium carbonate grades.
The increase is effective Dec. 1, 2014, or as current contracts allow. Prices will increase an average of five to 10 percent depending on product grade and packaging.
While we continue to focus on minimizing the inflationary impact on our ground calcium carbonate business, cost increases in materials, packaging, freight, regulatory compliance, labor and capital investments necessitate the pricing adjustment.
