Microporous implements significant price increases in all product categories and markets to offset substantially higher costs incurred for raw materials, energy and transportation.
The coronavirus pandemic has significantly disrupted the supply and demand of raw materials for the production of durable goods. While multiple suppliers had to scale down production and inventories due to the pandemic, demand for the end products increased. Since mid-2021, Microporous has been negatively impacted by an unprecedented, continuous and dramatic inflation in raw materials, transportation, and energy is putting at risk the sustainability of its polyethylene separator manufacturing. Decreases in these historically high costs for raw materials, energy, and distribution are unlikely in the near future.
Microporous is committed to protect and keep high quality and service while preserving long-standing relationships, ensuring reliable product supply, and continuing to make vital investments in innovation and continuous improvement.
Regional sales account managers remain available to provide additional details about the implementation of these price increases.
