AOC Increases Prices for US and Canada

10 September 2013

AOC has announced a price increase of US$0.06/lb in the US and CN$0.13/kilo in Canada for all resin and gelcoat products shipped on or after 1 October 2013.

This action is prompted by significant increases in raw material costs.  AOC has experienced steady increases since late July.

Recently, feedstocks such as benzene, butane, and mixed xylenes, among others, are increasing as part of their Fall seasonality.  Energy prices have also risen substantially in the last few weeks, with oil regaining the highs of earlier this year. 
 
AOCs global purchasing resources continue to work with suppliers to manage costs and meet customers’ needs.
