Sun Chemical will raise prices on its offset inks, coatings and consumables across North America, effective February 15, according to the company. The company attributes the increase to recent price hikes in a variety of raw materials including carbon black, oil, and pigments.
Prices will vary depending on the product line, but in general most prices will go up by a percentage in the high single digits, the company said.
“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 at 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.”
Sun Chemical Corporation is a subsidiary of Sun Chemical Group Cooperatief U.A., the Netherlands, and is headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey.
