Metsä Board: Price increase critical to business

According to Metsä Board the company has been forced to increase their paper prices in an effort to preserve the future business viability.

Metsä Board will increase the price for all woodfree uncoated paper products by 6 to 8% across all European markets. The new prices will take effect from September 2012.

Simon Guffogg, marketing director, Metsä Board, said "We know everyone is finding the current economic climate tough, but this price increase is, unfortunately, critical to our business. We trust our customers will understand the need for our prices to keep pace with our ever increasing costs."
