Sun Chemical Raises Ink Prices in Canada

Press release from the issuing company

Faced with continued volatility in the global supply chain and increases in the costs of raw materials, Sun Chemical will raise prices beginning December 1, 2011 in Canada by:
8 percent for heatset process inks,
12 percent for coldset black inks,
·         6 percent  for coldset color inks,
·         5 percent for water-based inks,
·         8 percent for solvent-based inks,
6 percent for energy curable inks,
·         5 percent for sheetfed inks, and
·         8 percent for water-based coatings.
“Commodity, resin and pigment prices continue to rise and are dramatically higher than earlier this year.  We see the supply of many critical raw materials continuing to be constrained due to operational, market, and weather related issues, and there doesn't appear to be any relief anticipated in the near term,” said Rod Staveley, President, Sun Chemical Canada. “We cannot absorb the drastic raw material price increases and global supply chain instability we continue to see. Despite these challenges, we will continue to deliver on-time, quality products to our customers through significant efforts of our supply chain and technical teams.”
