Fujifilm said it has been working hard to absorb material price increases by reducing its own operating costs and improving productivity. However, in the case of aluminium, the sheer magnitude of rising costs can no longer be sustained in this way. Fujifilm will continue to mitigate other rising costs, such as exchange rate fluctuations, energy and paper. The company will base its plate surcharges on the London Metal Exchange rate, which will be reviewed monthly. Details of the new structure will be communicated to all customers across EMEA.
