Dear Clients,
It appears that the US$0.05/lb increase announced by resin producers for May will hold.

If this is the case, we will be increasing pricing for all of our polyethylene converter film by CAD$0.06/lb effective Monday, June 1, 2015. This applies to all grades.
Furthermore, in order to reflect the true cost of making smaller orders, we will be implementing a CAD$0.10/lb surcharge for any orders less than 2,000 lbs and a CAD$0.05/lb surcharge for orders less than 5,000 lbs.
We thank you for your support and continued collaboration as we develop our film business.
