Eka Chemicals, Marietta, Ga., USA, the AkzoNobel Pulp and Paper Chemicals business, this week reported that it will increase prices across its entire North American Paper Chemicals product range by up to 20%, effective immediately or as contracts permit.

"Dramatic increases during the past year in the cost of basic materials have impacted Eka Chemicals' cost structure," says Greg Bengtson, VP, Sales and Marketing, Eka Chemicals Inc. North America. "Our continual efforts to optimize operational costs are being outpaced by these increases. It is therefore necessary for prices to be increased in order to maintain a sustainable business model."

Eka Chemicals is a supplier of bleaching chemicals, paper chemicals, and systems to the pulp and paper industry throughout the world, and supplies certain special chemicals to the pharmaceuticals industry, water treatment, the electronics industry, etc.
