Kelheim Fibres increases prices for Viscose fibres

Kelheim Fibres GmbH will increase prices for all Viscose fibre types by a minimum of EUR 0,10/kg with immediate effect.

The European market price for caustic soda has risen by 35 % since the third quarter of 2017, with extremely tight availability, and this has a direct effect on fibre production cost. Matthew North, Commercial Director of Kelheim Fibres GmbH comments as follows: “We have been confronted with a price increase of just under EUR 200 per tonne, and the level of the increase forces us to adjust fibre prices accordingly.” The Kelheim sales team will shortly be contacting customers on this matter. All existing agreements and obligations will of course be fulfilled.
