FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) – Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, today announced a global price increase effective immediately, or as contracts allow.  A 2-4% increase will occur on select process chemicals and containers.  Higher increases can be expected in countries where there has been significant local currency devaluation.  

“Escalating costs associated with labor, transportation, containers, and increased product and ingredient regulatory registration requirements make these increases necessary. We will continue to work in partnership with our customers to help mitigate these increases,” said Charles Robinson, senior vice president, Pulp & Paper. “Solenis continues to invest heavily in R&D and our manufacturing footprint to allow us to provide industry-leading product support and value to our pulp and paper customers.”
