Solenis to Increase Prices on all Process Chemicals Globally

WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) — Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices by five to 30 percent on all process chemicals, effective immediately or as customer contracts allow. The price increases are due to increases in key raw material costs, escalating freight costs and decreased market availability of several raw materials.

"We are committed to delivering high-value, innovative solutions to help customers maximize their productivity," said Varun Ratta, Senior Vice President, Product and Pricing Management. "While these price increases are necessary for us to reliably supply and support our customers, we'll continue our efforts to help mitigate these increases and control their costs with beneficial process improvements."
