North America: Flint Group Announces Price Increase on Heatset & Directory Inks in the U.S. and Canada.

Plymouth, MI USA – Ongoing raw material trends, including supply shortages, have pushed up the price of pigments, resins and other intermediates used in the manufacture of heatset & directory inks in North America. As a result, Flint Group has announced price increases on heatset & directory products sold in the US and Canada.

Prices will increase by 6% on inks and overprint varnishes, effective July 1, 2010, subject to existing contracts.

“Flint Group works very hard to shield customers from the impact of raw material trends,” notes Michael Podd, Business Director of Heatset Inks North America, “but the recent level of activity makes it impossible for us to absorb the effects completely.”
