Effective August 16, Charlotte-based DAK Americas LLC — a producer of polyester staple fibers
(PSFs), polyethylene terephthalate resins, monomers and special polymers and a subsidiary of
Mexico-based Alfa S.A.B. de C.V. — will raise the price on all of its PSF products by 3 cents per
pound. The company cited an increased demand for Asian polyester raw materials, which has resulted
in increased global demand for polyester feed stock, in announcing the price hike.
