Dicalite Announces Price Increases Across Industrial Mineral Product Lines for 2023
Dicalite Management Group recently announced price increases across its Diatomaceous Earth (DE), Perlite Filter-Aid and MicroLite product lines. This is for all products produced in our North American facilities. The product price increases range from 4 – 20+ percent depending upon volumes and prior agreements. The new pricing will affect shipments scheduled to leave DMG facilities on or after January 1, 2023. The increases are in addition to the current energy surcharges that are in place. Additionally, we have updated our LTL (less-than-truckload) policy to reflect a $250/pallet charge for any shipments leaving our facilities. This change does not impact the MicroLite product line. Please be aware of this charge when ordering.
We continue to be challenged by a number of factors that we cannot control. Our local labor markets remain very competitive and retaining skilled labor is critical for our operations group. We are seeing ongoing increases in health care and the other benefits we provide to our work force. Regulatory and compliance costs continue to escalate, as well as mining and other material inputs for our business. While we continue to work on cost reduction initiatives and investments in plant efficiency improvements, it is necessary to adjust our pricing to help alleviate the cost inflation we are experiencing.
Quality, service, and reliability remain our focus now and in the future. We thank you for your business and look forward to working together. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Sales Manager.
