Ahlstrom Increasing Price for Crepe Papers
July 12, 2007 - Ahlstrom said that it is increasing the price for its crepe paper grades, effective from July 1.
The company said the price hike is a result of the continuous rise of raw materials, in particular woodpulp, energy, transportation and packaging costs.
The level of the increases will depend on the nature of the products, on existing contracts and invoicing currencies, Ahlstrom said.
Ahlstrom's Crepe papers are produced in France, Finland and Italy, and are mainly used for masking tapes, wipes, medical sterilization wraps and other specialty applications such as table covers or food absorption pads.
