Calgon Carbon Corporation is implementing a price increase of 8-10% on coconut shell activated carbons, effective July 1, 2017. Products shipped on or after July 1st will be invoiced at the new price, as contracts permit.
A severe drought in the coconut growing regions has reduced availability of the coconut char raw material, which has increased costs dramatically. Calgon Carbon Corporation’s procurement team has been working diligently with its channel partners to control the effect, but we are no longer able to compensate for these increases.
Calgon Carbon Corporation will continue to take all appropriate actions to minimize the effect of these increased costs on our customers. We value the business you have entrusted to us and look forward to continuing to serve you.
