AOC Increase Prices in United States and Canada

19 November 2010

AOC will increase prices on all polyester resin, gel coat, pigments and additive products in the United States by US$0.06 per pound, and CN$0.13 per kilo in Canada, effective for shipments on and after December 17th, 2010.

AOC say that continued supply shortages and tightness in various markets have increased feedstock and raw material prices used to produce unsaturated polyester resins and gel coats. Additionally, key raw materials continue to be diverted to foreign/export markets due to strong demand coupled with regional shortages and tightness. They add that they are making every effort and working with suppliers to minimize the effects these rising raw materials prices are having on cost.
