Muttenz, Switzerland - Major industry supplier Clariant Business Unit Textile Chemicals announced price increases for its range of textiles chemicals and dyes, effective immediately.
The increases will run up to 15%, according to the company.
"Continuing shortages in raw materials are creating an on-going situation of rising feedstock prices for our business. This, in combination with ever-higher energy and transportation costs, leaves Clariant no alternative but to adjust the prices of our textile ranges for our customers," said Thomas Winkler, head of BU Textile Chemicals at Clariant International Ltd.
Clariant plans to contact customers individually to specify the price increases that apply to their products and regions.
