Koehler Paper to increase thermal paper prices by 10 - 12%
19 March 2018
Koehler Paper Group is increasing prices for its thermal paper product range by 10 - 12% for new orders, effective immediately.
This increase is driven by the global shortage of Leuco dye (ODB-2 color former), resulting in an unprecedented cost increase for this essential chemical used in thermal paper production. In addition to that, pulp prices continue to rise as there are no new capacities to supply the growing global demand.
The Koehler Paper Group is one of the few independent German companies in the paper industry.
