With manufacturing costs rising and mark-ups so far failing to keep pace, several producers of woodfree coated and uncoated paper are trying to increase prices in Germany.
Several manufacturers of woodfree uncoated paper have announced fresh mark-ups in Germany. Prices had certainly increased a bit after price hikes were announced in April, but suppliers had to accept cutbacks in these hikes.
Woodfree coated paper producers said that they had gradually contacted their buyers about a planned price hike. They had first focused on reels, but the folio sheet business was now in the spotlight.
