ACTEGA North America Announces Price Increases on all Product Groups within North America

North America, USA, China, Chemicals, Industrial, Secondary Packaging, Binding, Glue, Adhesives, Metal - Titanium, Printing, Supply Chain Services

ACTEGA North America have increased prices on Inks, Coatings, Adhesives and Pressroom Chemicals in response to the continuing and sustained rise in raw material and supply chain costs. This increase applies to products sold into all printing markets.

In addition to the cost increases already absorbed by ACTEGA North America, a broad range of key raw material pricing remains volatile and cost pressure is expected to continue through 2018.

Although the conditions are varied and wide spread, some examples include:

  • Titanium Dioxide supply is tight on a global basis resulting in well-publicized
    price escalation over the last 12 months.

  • Stringent Chinese environmental controls have forced manufacturer
    shutdowns and created crippling shortages of wide ranging materials.

  • Manufacturing disruptions have tightened basic raw material supply and
    generated price escalations.

ACTEGA North America has initiated many measures to absorb and mitigate cost increases over the past year, however additional disruption to supply and pricing stability requires us to pass along some of these costs. Our customers can be assured that quality and continuity of supply are top priorities for ACTEGA,” says Mark Westwell, CEO, ACTEGA North America.
