A resin increase of about 6% flowed through back in October, and since then things have been level despite other increase announcements through the end of the year and into January. Pricing in January was also level.
There is a 4-1/2% increase in resin pricing set for February, and due to the tightness on the supply end and the high level of activity in the spot markets, there is a fairly good chance that the February increase will stick. Further information on this will settle in by mid February, and we should have an update at that time.
As for lead times on products, things are fairly busy and usage planning is helpful to us in assuring that we meet your needs.
