This measure is inevitable and aimed to partially offset the continuous and extreme increase of raw material cost over the previous months.
Our experience of the past two years has shown that especially the pulp market remains very volatile and unpredictable. To protect the mutual interest of our customers and us we could offer longer price validities only when they are indexed on the market pulp price.
In addition to the cost increase in raw material, the energy market also expects a sharp price increase which will remain an additional challenge to our industry.
We would like to kindly emphasize and assure our customers and partners in the supply chain that we have taken all internal measures to optimise our cost and efficiency ensuring the lowest possible effect on our product pricing.
