North America Price Increase on Hot Melt, Reactive, Water-based Adhesives and Related Products

ST. PAUL, Minn. - H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) announced today that effective October 15, 2018, or as contracts allow, H.B. Fuller North America will implement price increases for all adhesives product categories and related products. Increases will be between 4 percent and 10 percent. These increases will affect products in the company’s durable assembly, hygiene, packaging, construction and paper converting segments.

The past 12 months have seen continued increases in raw material feedstock, logistic and labor costs. In recent months, pressure on hot melt, reactive and water-based raw materials has intensified. In North America, the added impact of tariffs and truck shortages also is affecting costs.

Customers should contact their H.B. Fuller sales representative for more details.
