The article reports on the announcement of price increases from Sun Chemical ranging from 6% to 12% in Europe, depending on the specific products, effective on November 1, 2007.

Felipe Mellado, corporate vice president for marketing of Sun Chemical Europe, gave the assurance that they will work closely with clients to minimize the impact of the increases.
