According to European Rubber Journal (subscription required), Diolen Industrial Fibers has announced a price increase of 10% for all of its products effective August 1, 2008. In a letter to customers, the company cited “steep and ongoing cost increases in main raw materials, energy, auxiliaries, packaging materials and transportation.” Diolen also indicated that it will begin to implement indexed pricing linked to raw materials costs and crude oil prices.

Diolen Industrial Fibers is a leading European producer of high tenacity polyester-based industrial yarns, including tire yarns, with factories in Germany and the Netherlands. In January 2008, Diolen was acquired by Traction Partners of Amsterdam.
