As a result, Wolstenholme is planning to implement a 4 percent increase on all carbon black dispersion products, effective Jan. 1. In addition, this October, Wolstenholme restructured its price schedules to better reflect the higher costs associated with small quantity orders and special packaging. And finally, the company is undergoing a product rationalization program to eliminate obsolete or nearly obsolete items, and to incorporate a stock/make-to-order program that it hopes will generate sufficient inventory cost savings to forestall another price increase in the near term.
Wolstenholme International Inc. is based in West Chicago, IL. MD-Both Industries, manufacturers of metallic inks and pigments, is the exclusive seller and marketer of Wolstenholme carbon black dispersions in North America.
