Lecta label papers

Oct. 14, 2021 - Lecta today announced a price increase of 12% - 14% on all its Specialty paper grades. The price increase is essential in order to offset the exceptional increase in raw materials driven by the soaring price of gas, energy and chemical costs, the company said.

The new prices for Thermal, Carbonless, Labels and Flexible Packaging papers will be effective on deliveries from new orders and applied in all markets.

On Oct. 8, Lecta also announced a price increase of 12% - 14% on all its CWF (coated woodfree) grades in sheets and reels, effective from new orders.

"These new quotations will be subject to the addition of surcharges due to the uncontrollable and unforeseeable increasing prices of gas and energy cost," Lecta said.

"In the current scenario of constant review of prices by our energy suppliers, Lecta's cost structure has suffered a significant downturn which is not sustainable without the relevant passing-on of these increases into the prices of our products by adding surcharges.

"These surcharges will be subject to review each month in accordance with the relevant energy prices of the immediately prior month," the company added.

Lecta noted that its sales teams are at customers' disposal to coordinate the price increase implementation.
