Zanders

Oct. 30, 2018 - German paper manufacturer Zanders today announced that it will increase the prices for all deliveries from January 1, 2019. The amount of the price increase will be individually discussed depending on the individual product, the respective market and customer, the company said.

“Prices for chemicals, energy and pulp have seemingly stabilized, but remain at an historical all-time high,” said John Tucker, Zanders Sales Director. “The cost explosion that has happened over the past one and a half years was not fully covered by previous price increases, and the buying market is still in a very tight situation for certain critical ingredients.

“As we near the conclusion of the investor process, the price increase is also part of the strategic considerations for 2019 to ensure a sustainable future for the company,” Tucker added.

Zanders said its sales team will be in contact with customers to discuss details about the new pricing.
