Uncoated fine paper prices to go up Mid April

Following on from their earlier warning for a return to solid pricing policies in the face of sustained cost increases, Metsä Board has announced a price increase for its uncoated fine paper business in Europe.

The increase will be at least 50 Euro per tonne and take effect for all deliveries invoiced from 15th April 2013.

As Mattias Kronberg, VP Sales & Marketing explains; “We need solid pricing policies to offset continued cost increases in raw materials, energy and transportation. This means that we must now raise prices in order to keep pace and retain a viable margin balance”.
