KELHEIM, Germany — February 19, 2018 — Kelheim Fibres GmbH will increase prices for all viscose fiber types by a minimum of 0.10 euros per kilogram with immediate effect. The European market price for caustic soda has risen by 35 percent since the third quarter of 2017, with extremely tight availability, and this has a direct effect on fiber production cost. Matthew North, commercial director, Kelheim Fibres, GmbH commented: “We have been confronted with a price increase of just under 200 euros per tonne, and the level of the increase forces us to adjust fiber prices accordingly.” The Kelheim sales team will shortly be contacting customers on this matter. All existing agreements and obligations will of course be fulfilled.
