DAK Americas To Increase Polyester Fiber Prices

Citing rising global costs of raw
materials and energy, Charlotte-based DAK Americas LLC will increase its polyester staple fiber
prices by 3 cents per pound on February 15, and again on March 15 by 2 cents per pound.

Both price increases will affect products sold to home furnishings, apparel, industrial,
carpet and fiberfill markets.
