Raw Material Costs Due to Oil Prices

on March 2, 2012

As gas and oil prices climb, we knew it wouldn’t be long before corrugated plastic and foam materials followed.  The manufacturers of polyurethane foam have announced price increases for both ethers and esters.  They are stating increase amounts of up to 20% effective March 12, 2012.  Rising raw material and energy costs are given as the drivers.  Packnet will continue to minimize the effect of these increases in any way possible.
