Huber Announces North American Price Increase for Kaolin Clay (8/29/06)

Huber Engineered Materials, part of J.M. Huber Corp., has announced a North American price increase across its entire "industrial specialties" kaolin clay portfolio. The increase is effective October 1, 2006, or as current contracts allow. Many kaolin prices will increase significantly, depending on the product grade, volume and form.

According to company officials, Huber Engineered Materials has worked hard to improve its productivity and processing efficiencies in an effort to maintain cost competitive products and services. With raw materials, energy, transportation and other costs continuing to rise, officials said the price increase is necessary to offset these costs while continuing to ensure on-time deliveries and industry-leading customer service.
