AOC Announces Price Increase for EMEA21 May 2021
AOC has today announced a price increase of €350 per ton for its entire Epoxy Vinyl Ester (VE) portfolio sold in Europe, Middle East and Africa. The price increase will take effect on June 1st, or as soon as contracts allow. This price increase is in addition to the increases that were announced on April 12th, 2021.
“The availability of key raw materials like Glacial Methacrylic Acid (GMAA) and Liquid Epoxy Resins (LER) from our contract suppliers has been severely hampered and we are continuing to have to resort to other, significantly more expensive, sources. Also logistics and packaging costs have been increasing steadily. This leaves us no choice but to further raise the prices of our products as a result, realizing that supply can continue to be somewhat irregular given these additional supply routes”, explains Fons Harbers, Vice President Marketing & Sales EMEA of AOC.
