Jushi USA, a distributor of fibreglass reinforcements headquartered in California, says that rising energy, labour, raw material and freight costs are the reason for the price increase. 

Jushi USA is part of the Jushi Group of China, one of the world’s largest producers of fibreglass reinforcements.

New fibre glass plants

Jushi is on track to start up a new plant in Egypt by the fourth quarter of 2014.

The company says it is also evaluating the possibility of building a plant in the USA.
