Activated Carbon – Price increase notice
Jacobi Carbons is announcing its decision to implement a further price increase for our Coconut-based Activated Carbon up to 10% due to a continued increase of raw material costs. The price increases will be applied for shipments made as of September 1, 2017.
Due to our multiple sourcing locations and our professional sourcing approach of charcoal throughout Asia, we have been able to sustain security of supply for our valued customers. However, charcoal prices continue to go up across Asia. Unfortunately, this continued trend forces Jacobi to implement a second price increase as of September 1, 2017.
We continue to reduce overhead expenses to mitigate the situation, however, a pass-through to our customers is unfortunately necessary.
Our strategic sourcing team continues to work to minimize any cost impact to our customers.
We thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to ensure supply in spite of these difficulties.
