Sika Corporation Industrial Division Announces Price Increase

Published on 2005-05-12. Author : SpecialChem

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. -- The Industry Division of Sika Corporation is raising prices to adjust to the continued escalating costs of a number of raw materials required to produce the company's products. Previous price adjustments have not recovered supplier cost hikes which are expected to persist throughout the remainder of the year. Selling prices for some of the division's products will be boosted by 5 to 10%.

"It is no secret that petroleum based raw materials, energy and transportation costs continue to rise. We remain committed to offset some of these costs with productivity and technology improvements, and by simply absorbing other costs. However, we have to pass on some portion of the most recent increases in order to maintain the performance integrity of our products and profitability targets for our shareholders," said Bill Pringle, the division's senior vice president.
