The Navigator Company will increase tissue prices by 6-8% in all markets. This increase will be effective for all dispatches from 1st of April.
This decision was taken following the generalised and significant price hikes in many input cost, notably in commodities like chemical products, packaging products (plastics and containerboard), logistics, and pulp, being the latter the main cost factor for tissue production.
The tissue industry has seen abrupt price increases of 15-20% or more in some of these input costs over the last 3 months, which made it impossible not to reflect these in its finished goods prices.
The Navigator Company is the leading European manufacturer of uncoated printing and writing paper and bleached eucalyptus pulp.
