CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Albemarle
Corporation (NYSE: ALB), a leader in the global specialty chemicals
industry, today announced a price increase for Catalysts global
business unit customers. These price increases are effective
immediately, or as contracts allow.
Albemarle and its suppliers are
continuing to see unprecedented increases worldwide in energy costs
(gas and electricity) and for key raw materials that are critical
to manufacturing our performance products.
Several factors are impacting an increase in the cost of energy
and key raw materials, some of which may be temporary. Examples
include the increased energy costs in Europe due to a winter shortage, the up-to-40%
increase in the costs of industrial metals, and the acute tightness
in chlor alkali markets. Albemarle
continues to monitor the energy and commodities markets
"Albemarle remains committed to
delivering value to our customers with no interruptions to supply,"
said Raphael Crawford, President,
Catalysts global business unit. "Our intent is to cover the
increased costs we are experiencing through productivity gains and
price adjustments for our products and services, and to flex with
the market over the coming months."
