Sun Chemical today announced plans to increase the prices for its offset inks, coatings and consumables in North America, effective February 15, 2018. The company explains the pending change, which follows a trend from other suppliers, is based recent price increases of a variety of raw materials including carbon black, oil and pigments.
“While Sun Chemical has done all it can to offset the price increases of our suppliers, it has now become necessary to pass some of these increases on to our customers,” said Felipe Mellado, Chief Marketing Officer, Sun Chemical. “We regret having to take this action, but remain committed to providing the products and services that address all of our customers’ needs.”
Prices will vary depending on the product line, according Sun Chemical, but in general most prices will go up by a percentage in the high single digits.
