ST. PAUL, Minn., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE:FUL) announced today that, effective September 4, 2018, or as contracts allow, H.B. Fuller North America will implement price increases for all polymer and water-based adhesives product categories. Increases will be between 7 percent and 12 percent. These increases will affect products in the company’s packaging, durable assembly, construction and paper converting segments.
The past 12 months have seen continued increases in raw material feedstock, logistic and labor costs. Raw material inflationary pressure exists globally due to tight supply in a robust demand environment. In North America, the added impact of truck shortages and low unemployment also is affecting costs.
Customers should contact their H.B. Fuller sales representative for more details.
