Kemira Oyj, Finland, has implement a price increase of up to 15%, depending on product segment, for its pulp and paper chemicals. The adjustment affects selected product lines between 5% and 15% and was immediately implemented, or as existing contracts allow.

The price increase is due to increases in all major cost drivers, including key feed stocks and raw material, energy, and transport, Kemira notes. The company says it has continuously rationalized operations and reduced fixed costs, but has now reached a point when a price increase is necessary to secure its position as a strong supplier to the pulp and paper industry.
