Flint Group announces a global price increase for all Packaging Inks products

Thursday, December 07, 2017

 

Increased, incremental cost escalation forces Flint Group to raise the prices of its Packaging Inks products.

Further to announcements made in March 2017, it has become clear that the raw material markets for many components within Flint Group’s Packaging Inks products have experienced price escalation. Many raw material markets remain highly volatile as 2017 comes to a close.

Q3 2017 saw significant increases and supplementary rises have been announced for Q4 2017. Current forecasts indicate that the price pressure will not lessen as the industry moves into 2018. These unique cost burdens necessitate that Flint Group Packaging Inks raise prices globally as of 1 January 2018. Argumentation is discussed below and our sales representatives are currently in the market discussing the magnitude of increases for each customer and segment.
