Ahlstrom Corporation PRESS RELEASE September 6, 2013 at 12.00
Ahlstrom, a global high performance fiber-based materials company, announces
price increases in the fourth quarter of 2013 for its filtration materials
globally. The price increases will be made to compensate for the continued rise
in raw material costs such as specialty pulps, chemicals and energy as well as
adverse currency fluctuations.
Prices of specialty fibers including mercerized pulp, cotton and glass, as well
as energy and chemicals have continued to rise steadily over recent months.
The price increase will affect filtration materials produced by Ahlstrom
globally. The level and timing of the increase will depend on the markets
served, the raw material content of the product and the agreements in place. The
increase will be up to 10%. Specific details will be
discussed with each
customer individually by the appropriate sales teams in the coming days.
