Zanders announces price increases for all paper products

13 November 2018

Paper producer Zanders will increase the prices for all deliveries from 1 January 2019. The amount of the price increase will be individually discussed depending on the individual product, the respective market and customer, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

Zanders Sales Director John Tucker, said: "Pricesfor chemicals, energy and pulp have seemingly stabilized, but remain at a historical all-time high. 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.”

Zanders is a German manufacturer of high-quality specialty papers and boards for labeling, packaging and graphic applications.
