Södra announced a price increase for its NBSK pulp in Europe from USD 860 per tonne to USD 890 per t, effective May 1, 2017.
Magnus Björkman, VP Marketing and sales Södra Cell, commented:
“Recent statistics and the fact that we are receiving requests for additional tonnage in several markets indicate that an already tight market is showing no sign of easing, on the contrary.”
The company had already implemented a price increase from April 1, 2017
Earlier Välinge licensed exclusive patent-pending outdoor decking system to Södra.
