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.
