Omya implements Surcharge on Calcium Carbonate products in Europe

Omya announces a temporary surcharge on its Calcium Carbonate products in Europe with immediate effect.

With the escalation of the geopolitical situation, Omya has immediately taken measures to ensure business continuity. While it is impossible to predict every potential crisis scenario, Omya Supply Chain Teams across Europe keep closely monitoring the situation. Thanks to the Groups’ strong production footprint, its numerous, strategically spread logistics assets and a reliable distribution network, Omya is confident to be very well prepared to mitigate as best as possible any production and delivery disruptions.

However, due to this crisis situation, Omya is highly exposed to further unprecedent cost escalation of electricity, oil, diesel, fuel, raw materials, chemicals and  logistics costs.

The magnitude of these impacts cannot be absorbed and requires to implement temporary surcharges with immediate effect. They will be adjusted according to the ongoing cost developments and canceled as soon as the situation allows.

These temporary surcharges are implemented in addition to the previously announced price increases which had become necessary to mitigate the significant cost inflation the industry has faced over the past months.
