Solenis to Increase Prices in North America for Pulp & Paper and Industrial Water

February 2, 2021

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) — Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices by 3 to 15 percent on a range of polymer-based chemistries, effective immediately or as customer contracts allow. These price increases are necessary due to inflation and availability of raw materials and elevated freight and energy costs.

"We are unable to absorb the impact of the increased costs that we are currently experiencing but we will continue to work in partnership with our customers to help mitigate the increases," said Cory Ross, director, North America marketing and product management. "Solenis remains committed to controlling costs through process improvements to deliver high-value, innovative solutions that our customers have come to expect."
