Carestream Raises Prices of X-Ray Films
Silver, which comprises a major portion of manufacturing expenses, has more than doubled in cost in the last year and has increased more than five times in cost in the last six years, Carestream says. In addition, oil prices have risen 30% in the last year, which heightens the cost of utilities, transportation and the petroleum-based polyester used in the production of film.
Specific details surrounding price increases will be communicated locally in each country. In the interim, customers that have questions are asked to contact their local Carestream Health sales representative or authorized dealer.
