Price increases for laminate and label films

POLIFILM Extrusion GmbH, a leading supplier of laminate and label films in Europe, is increasing its prices for all new orders as of 1st May 2015. The Division Manager for Technical Films at POLIFILM states increasing raw material costs, resulting from the Force Majeure declarations of Polymer-producers, are a reason for this measure. ‘The Force Majeure declarations we have received have not only lead to an unprecedented increase of raw material prices but also to a supply bottleneck, which in turn directly affects our customers. Ensuring sufficient supply of raw materials is our outmost priority’ the Division Manager says. The POLIFILM group is one of the international independent market leaders of high quality plastic films. Approximately 1,200 employees in seven locations worldwide manufacture more than 250,000 tons of plastics annually. The company offers a broad spectrum of film products and services, ranging from films for the industrial and consumer goods sector to the agricultural and construction sector.
