Ahlstrom to Hike Prices for Crepe Paper Grades
Dec. 22, 2006 - Ahlstrom said that it will increase prices for its crepe paper grades on January 1, 2007.
The company did not say how much the increases would be, but that the level of the increases will depend on the nature of the products, on existing contracts and invoicing currencies.
Steadily rising costs of raw materials, energy, transportation and packaging forced the price hikes, Ahlstrom said.
Ahlstrom's crepe papers are used for masking tapes, wipes, medical sterilization wraps and other specialty applications such as table covers or food absorption pads. The company's crepe papers are produced in France, Finland and Italy.
