Stretch Film Pricing

As a result of rising feedstock costs, increased global demand, and reduced inventories our resin producers have informed us that the previously announced price increase will implement on September 1st. Several grades of polyethylene resin remain under tight supply conditions.

Due to tight resin availability and extended lead times we will strictly limit our customer’s orders in September to a quantity equal to one month of theft average historical six months purchases. Your Sales Representative will inform you of your average purchases over the preceding six months. In addition, we reserve the right to accept or decline orders for any reason.

Polyethylene prices continued higher, amid tight supplies and soaring spot feedstock costs. Supply restrictions will further enhance producers' pricing power as they look to add to the $.03 - .05/lb increase earned for August contracts. Most producers nominated another $.05/lb for September, with one producer again at $.03/lb and another waiting until October to implement their nickel.
