Voith has confirmed it will implement price adjustments for paper machine clothing, shoe press sleeves, roll covers, mechanical roll service and doctoring solutions.
The company explained that the global pandemic has caused major unpredictable challenges in both public and private areas; one of these effects is enormous cost increases in many industrial sectors, for example raw materials, packaging and transport. Over a period of time, Voith was able to offset this development through various measures, avoiding significant price increases for its customers. But due to the ongoing development, it is now no longer possible to compensate all increased costs. In line with the current market situation, Voith is therefore forced to make price adjustments for some products and services in the paper industry.
In the product areas of paper machine clothing, shoe press sleeves, roll covers, mechanical roll service and doctoring solutions, prices will increase between 2.8% and 4.2%. Further details will be announced in autumn and will then apply to newly placed orders.
