Sid Richardson Carbon Company (SRC) announces that all selling prices of its carbon black products will increase effective July 1, 2016, or as customer contracts allow. Price increases between 4% and 6% will be implemented. According to William R. Jones, President and CEO of SRC, the price increases are necessary to offset increased operational costs associated with increasing governmental regulations, increases in the cost of labor and capital equipment necessary to maintain plant infrastructure and inflation-related impacts. “Over the last several years, SRC has made significant investments in its production facilities in the US to drive productivity and continuously improve the quality of products and services for our customers. In addition, painstaking efforts have been made to reduce production costs. While in past years we have made every effort to avoid passing on any cost increase to our customer base, this situation is no longer sustainable. We will continue to take every action to minimize our cost structure but have come to a point where we are forced to appropriately adjust our prices to offset cost increases imposed on us,” said Jones. SRC will also implement changes to its Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale and its Standard Packaging and Premium Charges, in each case effective July 1, 2016
