Jacobi Carbons is announcing a price increase of up to 10% for all of our anthracite and bituminous coal-based activated carbons in pelletised, granular and powdered forms. Unfortunately, this is necessary as the operational cost for these products has continued to increase significantly. A variety of factors have lead to limited supply in the main production location meaning manufacturing costs for coal-based pellets have risen significantly.
These general price increases will apply as of April 1st 2019. This means that all deliveries made (and invoiced) as of April 1st 2019 will adopt the new pricing structure. Due to our multiple sourcing and production locations, as well as our professional sourcing approach throughout the world, we have been able to sustain security of supply for our valued customers. However, operational costs continue to increase globally.
We continue to reduce overhead expenses to mitigate the situation, however, a partial passthrough to our customers has, unfortunately, become necessary. We thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to ensure supply in spite of these challenging conditions.
