Stretch Film Pricing by Quick Pak Inc

Polyethylene prices were mostly steady; offers generally reflect at least half of the $.06/lb price increase still sought for February.

Dear Valued Customer,

Due to rising feedstock costs, improving global market demand, and low inventories, our resin suppliers have informed us of their intentions to implement a previously announced resin increase of $.06/lb. effective February 1st. In addition to this February increase, our suppliers have also announced another increase of $.07/lb. for March 1st which we will monitor and address at a later date.

Sigma Stretch Film reserves the right to accept or decline all orders for any reason. Please check with your local plant location.

Dear ExxonMobil Chemical Polyethylene Customer: In addition to the previous $0.06/lb. price increase implemented in January 2012, ExxonMobil Chemical Co. is announcing the following polyethylene price increases effective with all shipments on or after March 1, 2012.

Producers and processors continue to spar regarding the January price increase. Producers remain intent to maintain the $.06/lb increase that they have billed for Jan. Buyers however, see spot sales at prices less than the current increase market observers have indicated the market steady to $.03/lb higher. If producers do not get their increase in Jan, they will go for it again in Feb.
