BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, October 15 /CNW/ - IMERYS Pigments for Paper Europe
will raise UK Filler Kaolin prices by an average of 3% for its pigments for
paper product lines effective December 1, 2007 as contracts allow.
Significant cost pressures in chemicals, mining, fuel, and power are key
drivers for the announced price increase. The moderate level of this increase
is a consequence of Imerys' recent investment to create a sustainable UK
filler kaolin platform for the future.
