ST. PAUL, Minn., April 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE:FUL) announced today that, effective May 8, 2017, or as contracts allow, the global automotive business group of H.B. Fuller will increase the price for adhesives 5 percent to 10 percent in all regions. This announcement excludes solvents and some polyurethanes, which may have a larger percent increase.
After a relatively long period of stability, an increase is necessitated due to recent cost changes and supply constraints to feedstocks, such as propylene, ethylene, methanol, butadiene, isoprene and acetone, which have led to higher raw material costs.
“While striving to manage increases internally and with our global supply chain, it has become necessary to increase our prices so that we can continue the same high level of quality and service our customers expect,” says Matthew McGreevy, business director, H.B. Fuller, Global Automotive.
H.B. Fuller sales professionals will contact customers affected. More information about H.B. Fuller’s automotive business and products may be found at www.hbfullerengineering.com/transportation.
