Sappi Europe to increase prices for its European coated and uncoated fine papers

The sudden and continuing sharp rise in input costs and the consequently squeezed profit margins make corrective pricing measures inevitable as Sappi Europe’s Graphics business becomes unsustainable at current price levels. We are therefore announcing a price increase of 8% for all European coated and uncoated fine paper business, both sheets and reels, as per the 15th of March 2017. For the Sappi Europe grades exported outside of Europe we will selectively apply a price increase based on specific local circumstances.
Our customers will be personally informed by our local sales management who will provide them with all information they may ‎require.
