Ahlstrom to Hike Pricing on Its Graphics and Packaging Products

June 7, 2011 - Ahlstrom said that it will increase prices for its graphics and packaging products worldwide, effective for all shipments as of July 1, 2011.

The increases, which Ahlstrom said are a consequence of the rise in raw material, chemicals and energy costs, will vary up to 10 percent, depending on products and markets.

Ahlstrom's graphics and packaging products are part of the Label and Processing Business Area and their end-use applications include metalized wet glue labels, flexible packaging, envelope windows and repositionable notes.
