Stretch Film Prices up 7% end of May 2015
We have been informed by our raw material resin producers that they intend to implement a resin increase effective on May 1st. Due to this pending escalation in resin prices, as well as increased operating costs, we regrettably must increase the pricing on our stretch film products.
There will be a 7% price increase for all products, effective on all orders received on or after May 26, 2015. All orders must call for immediate delivery. (Amtopp) (Sigma) (AEP) U.S. Stretch Film Producer April 2015
