OFTRINGEN, Switzerland , Oct. 25, 2021 (Press Release) -Omya announces to significantly increase prices for its Calcium Carbonate products globally, starting November 1st, 2021 or as customer contracts allow.
This planned price adjustment is a result of the extraordinary escalation of raw material, chemical, energy, packaging, services, transportation costs, as well as general inflation across all regions.
Our ongoing efforts to absorb these impacts internally whenever possible, and our continued actions with investments in supply chain efficiencies, productivity improvements, purchasing excellence, expense control, digitization, operational effectiveness and innovation have only partially enabled us to offset this significant and unprecedented cost inflation.
This inflationary cost pressure is so high that we are forced to implement immediate price increases on all our product grades.
Under these exceptional circumstances, Omya remains committed to controlling its operating costs, strengthening technical service, and developing innovative solutions, high quality, cost effective products to help our customers mitigate the impact and optimize their total cost of ownership during this particularly challenging situation.
We will continue to invest in additional capacity and technology to meet our customers’ demand for innovation and profitable growth.
Regional announcements will follow to communicate on specific increases per region or country. Omya Sales Teams will contact customers with further details regarding pricing, depending upon specific product grades, packaging types and delivery terms.
