Solenis to Increase Prices on All Product Lines Globally

October 8, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) — Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices by five to 20 percent on all process, functional and water treatment chemicals globally, effective immediately or as customer contracts allow. The price increase is necessary due to the steep increase in raw material costs and the supply-demand tightness experienced throughout 2018 which is expected to continue and increase during 2019.

"Solenis continues to partner with customers to deliver high-quality products and innovative solutions which create value," said Varun Ratta, Senior Vice President of Product and Pricing Management. "We remain deeply committed to controlling, and where possible, mitigating costs and increasing operational efficiencies in order to provide differentiated technologies and reliability to our customers."
