Amid rising demand, titanium and carbon-fiber makers are largely
catering to their bigger customers: the aerospace industry. Zsolt
Rumy, chief executive of St. Louis-based Carbon Fiber maker Zoltek
Companies Inc., says he is trying to keep prices lower for bigger
customers by raising prices for smaller ones, such as bike and
golf-club makers, who constitute 15% of his company's business. "We
really jack up the price" for smaller customers, he says. He's passed
on more of the 60% to 100% increases to sporting-goods customers.
