Cancarb staff and retirees have been busy giving back to the Medicine Hat community in a big way these past several months. And this is only the beginning… Check it out
Cancarb Supports Mental Health Campaign
Cancarb is proud to have been able to support the Medicine Hat and District Health Foundation’s “Giving Hope for Mental Health” campaign. Throughout the month of May, Cancarb encouraged our staff to make donations to the pediatric portion of the campaign, and in return, match dollar for dollar with corporate funding. Combined, we raised just over $8,900. You can check out the press release here for more information.
Cancarb President Recognizes Dedication to Food Bank Support
Cancarbs’ own Vice President, Quality and Development, Ross Buchholz, has been spear-heading the volunteer work we’ve recently been fortunate enough to do for the Medicine Hat and District Food Bank, and this type of leadership simply cannot go unnoticed. Cancarb President, Peter Donnelly, planned a surprise presentation on June 7 to show Ross how much the Cancarb team and Food Bank staff appreciate his hard-work and dedication to this #CancarbCares cause.
Over 1000 hampers delivered, all because Ross stepped up where he saw a need; we couldn’t be more proud!
Cancarb Price Increase
As announced on May 5, 2021, Cancarb Limited will increase prices 7%-9% globally on all Thermax® brand thermal carbon black products for all shipments as of June 15, 2021. This price increase is necessary to address substantial cost increases in global freight, packaging materials, and other input costs, which have become too difficult to absorb through production cost reduction measures alone. We appreciate your understanding to ensure Cancarb can maintain our stable supply of high quality products and services globally. Please contact your Cancarb sales representative to answer any questions you may have regarding this price increase.

Our unit 6 project Safety Coordinator, Tim Price, had a thought… If we save every bottle and can each worker on the Unit 6 expansion project uses over the course of this construction, we would be able to make a donation to a great local organization. So, we did just that.
After taking up a 16-month collection of recycled bottles and cans, plus an additional donation from some of our contracting partners and ourselves, we were able to present the Medicine Hat Skateboard Association with a $2500 cheque. The MHSA is an important organization in our community, promoting outdoor activity and a positive group environment for kids of all ages. It also holds a special place in Tim’s heart!
After 3 years of planning, 16 months of constructions, 53 individual contracting partners, and the hard work and dedication of our team, Cancarb is proud of the safe and successful completion of our 6th Unit.
