Propex to increase prices of furnishing solutions business unit

Mar '10
The Furnishing Solutions Business Unit of Propex Operating Company, LLC has announced a 7% price increase for all products sold into the North American carpet, automotive, turf, furniture and bedding industries, effective April 1, 2010. This upward adjustment is in addition to the price increases announced in February.

This increase is primarily driven by the continued, upward trend in key raw materials, notably polypropylene resin. Over the past twelve months, the cost of polypropylene resin has doubled.

"We refuse to let the unpredictable costs of hydrocarbons drive our business model. Our objective remains to earn our customer's business on an ongoing basis through the delivery of innovative product and service solutions. As a company, we remain committed to maintaining reasonable margins that allow us to continue investing in product technology, service and manufacturing resources to help meet the needs of our customers," said Dave Gartshore, Vice President Sales – Furnishing Solutions.
