Prices on Corian® solid surfaces and Zodiaq® Quartz products in most cases will increase by 5 percent. All product price increases become effective May 9, 2011, or as permitted by contract.
"As the cost of raw materials, energy and transportation continue to rise, these price increases are needed to help ensure supply continuity," said Doug Baker, Americas business director.
