U.S. Zinc to raise spot premium prices for zinc oxide

HOUSTON – Officials with U.S. Zinc today announced that spot premium prices for all grades of zinc oxide will increase. The price increase will not affect customers currently under contract with the company.

U.S. Zinc is notifying customers of the change, which will go into effect September 15, 2016. The increase is being implemented to counter increased zinc premiums and other cost pressures.

“Current spot premiums in the market are not sustainable,” said U.S. Zinc President Tracy Baugh. “Ultimately, this price increase allows us to stay ahead of market demand, while maintaining the highest quality and customer service our customers have come to expect.”
