Dear Valued Haltermann Customer:
Given the extraordinary rise in petroleum pricing and the associated impact on raw material and blend stock costs, Haltermann Solutions will be implementing a price increase for its gasoline and diesel fuels. The price increase will be effective Monday, April 4, 2011.
For all customers using blanket pricing, please ensure that the new blanket prices are uploaded by the effective date. Haltermann will verify that the blanket prices are reflected in customer systems prior to the effective date to minimize any chance of delayed shipments. Due to a recent upswing in raw material pricing, we are forced to implement this price action.
Raw material pricing has been rapidly increasing the past few months for all of our blend stocks. Given this trend, we must increase the price of all products as follows:
Inventoried bulk fuels will be adjusted by the exact raw material cost.
Inventoried drummed fuels will be adjusted by the exact raw material cost.
All other made-to-order fuels will be changed by an average increase based on the nature of the material (gasoline, diesel etc.).
Gasoline products by an average of $0.30/gallon
Oxygenated gasoline products by an average of $0.25/gallon
Diesel products by an average of $0.43 per gallon
To determine the price impact on the specific fuels you purchase, please contact your Haltermann Solutions customer service representative or your Account Manager.

Over the past several years, our pricing actions have been consistent with our previous price announcements in which we committed to the following:
If the variation, up or down, in Haltermann’s raw material pricing is relatively small, Haltermann is committed to maintain price levels to help stabilize fuel prices.
If, however, the cost of our raw materials changes, in either direction, up or down, beyond a pre-determined level, we adjust our pricing accordingly. Effective April 4, 2011 we must implement price increases for all of our gasoline, oxygenated gasoline and diesel products.
We know how much effort is needed by our customers to implement price adjustments. At this point, we continue to find it necessary to continue regular adjustments due to changing raw material prices. If raw material prices again stabilize, we will strive to reduce the frequency of price adjustments and provide more price stability.
We sincerely appreciate your continued business with Haltermann Solutions. Please contact your Haltermann Account Managers, Elisha Petersen (313-806-9172) or Josh Petersen (615-812-7063), your customer service representative (800-969-2542) or me, personally, should you have any questions.
