Voith to Raise Paper Machine Clothing Prices in EMEA

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Through improvements in manufacturing efficiencies and structural adaptations, Voith, Germany, says that it has remained competitive, despite the challenging market environment and the negative price development for paper machine clothing during the past 10 years. 

In some areas however, despite intensive efforts, cost increases have not been possible to mitigate. Voith will therefore, beginning June 1, 2018, increase its machine clothing pricing in EMEA between 1.6% and 2.4%. 

Voith notes that due to a reduction in manpower by its customer base, there is a constantly increasing demand for service support from Voith. With the planned price increase, the company can ensure that the ongoing and future focus of its customers on continuous improvement, their need for innovative products, and service support can be met.
