n the light of further, sustained increases in raw materials, energy and transport costs, Sappi Fine Paper Europe has reviewed current margins for its Graphic Woodfree papers and will raise its prices where they have become unsustainable.
This will be discussed with each concerned customer individually in all countries where Sappi Fine Paper Europe operates, with the aim of achieving their appropriate and necessary increase during June of this year. Adjustments will vary, but in some cases may be up to 7%.
In the coming weeks Sappi sales staff will be contacting customers to begin implementation.
