December 11, 2000
Zemex Industrial Minerals, Inc., a subsidiary of Zemex Corp., has announced price increases of 5-8% for its industrial and cosmetic talcs, effective January 1, 2001. The company sites higher costs for energy as a primary factor, but rising costs for labor, supplies and raw materials have combined with energy to exceed the company's ability to maintain adequate margins through increased productivity.
