Lecta to Hike Prices for Thermal and Carbonless Paper

Lecta thermal and carbonless paper

July 6, 2017 - Lecta has announced price increases for its thermal and carbonless paper deliveries, effective September 4, 2017.

The increase will be around 6% in thermal papers and 10% for carbonless papers, depending on format and country.

Lecta said the price increase is unavoidable to offset the increase in manufacturing costs due to the continuously rising prices of raw materials, particularly pulp and chemicals.

Lecta added that its sales teams are at customers' disposal to provide specific information on how the price increase will be applied by product on a country by country basis.

Lecta is a leading European manufacturer and distributor of specialty paper for labels and flexible packaging, coated and non-coated paper for publishing and commercial printing, and other high value-added print media.
