“This price adjustment reflects increased manufacturing costs, investments in environmental control and operating costs, and continued investments to ensure reliable supply,” said Orion CEO, CorningPainter. “Given the rising cost of raw materials, payment terms need to be reduced to acceptable working capital levels. This will allow us to continue to provide stable and reliable supplies to our customers. »
