KaMin Increases Kaolin Clay Pricing

March 22, 2011

KaMin LLC recently announced that it will increase prices for kaolin clay products for export container customers effective May 1 or as contracts allow. This increase will apply to all paper and industrial accounts on which KaMin pays the freight for shipment in containers.

“Our container carriers have notified us of both general rate increases as well as increased fuel surcharges associated with those container shipments,” said Tom Anderskow, vice president, Commercial. “While these circumstances are clearly beyond our control, we will continue to work with our carriers to do our best to minimize the impact to our customers. However, as we have communicated in the past, we must pass these increases through.”
