Thiele Kaolin Company Natural Gas Surcharge Policy

Recent supply and demand imbalances in global energy markets have resulted in significant volatility in the cost of natural gas.  Thiele uses natural gas in a number of processes in the production of our products.  As a result, natural gas is a significant contributor to our overall cost of production.   In order to account for spikes in natural gas costs, Thiele maintains a natural gas surcharge policy.  This policy allows for a temporary surcharge due to the additional costs.  Details of the policy can be found on  Please address any questions to your local Thiele sales representative.
