The global pandemic has caused major unpredictable challenges in both public and private areas. One of these effects is enormous cost increases in many industrial sectors, for example raw materials, packaging and transport.
- Due to continuing significant cost increases in many industrial sectors, Voith has to make price adjustments in the paper industry
- The adjustments pertain to paper machine clothing, shoe press sleeves, roll covers, mechanical roll service and doctoring solutions
- The increases will apply to new orders placed starting this autumn and range between 2.8% and 4.8%
Over a period of time, Voith was able to offset this development through various measures, thus avoiding significant price increases for its customers. Due to the ongoing development, it is now unfortunately no longer possible to compensate all increased costs. In line with the current tense market situation, Voith is therefore forced to make price adjustments for some products and services in the paper industry.
In the product areas of paper machine clothing, shoe press sleeves, roll covers, mechanical roll service and doctoring solutions, prices will increase between 2.8% and 4.2%. Further details will be announced in autumn and will then apply to newly placed orders.
The target of Voith remains unchanged: to support its customers and business partners with leading expertise, outstanding service and innovative products and solutions – in an increasingly complex and challenging business world.
