Kemira, a global chemicals company, announces price increases for all coagulant products in the EMEA region across all segments. The price increases will become effective as of November 1st, 2018 or as contract terms allow.
Price increases are necessary due to significant cost increases from several sides: All freight rates have considerably increased in 2018 and are expected to continue to rise.
Raw materials especially for aluminum-based coagulants pose an unusual challenge as the tight supply situation is globally driving cost up to unprecedented levels. Shortage of raw materials for iron-based coagulants also continue pushing cost further up.
The price increases will vary based on different product types and may be significantly higher in specific countries.
Kemira does its best to mitigate impact of increasing cost while ensuring supply of high quality products to its customers. Kemira continues to be committed as a long-standing, reliable supplier of coagulants.
