September 29, 2004
The Imerys Performance Minerals and Fine Ceramics division recently announced the introduction of energy-related price increases on kaolin, ball clay and ground calcium carbonate (GCC) products manufactured in Europe, effective October 1, 2004. In the last 12 months, the indices of energy prices have risen dramatically, impacting freight and production costs. Imerys reports that these cost increases have already impacted its current business, and as a result, the company will introduce average price increases of 6% on its Performance Minerals and Fine Ceramics products.
