Omya recently announced that it will significantly increase prices for its calcium carbonate products globally, beginning November 1, 2021, or as customer contracts allow. The company reports that the planned price adjustment is a result of an extraordinary escalation of raw material, chemical, energy, packaging, services, and transportation costs, as well as general inflation across all regions.

According to Omya, it remains committed to controlling its operating costs, strengthening technical service, and developing innovative solutions and high-quality, cost-effective products to help its customers mitigate the impact and optimize their total cost of ownership during this particularly challenging situation. The company will continue to invest in additional capacity and technology to meet customers’ demand for innovation and profitable growth.

Omya will make regional announcements to communicate specific increases per region or country. Sales teams will be contacting customers with additional details regarding pricing, depending on specific product grades, packaging types, and delivery terms.
