Buckman has announced a global price increase for its paper division.

The company said the increases are “being driven by rising raw materials, constraints from supply chain tightness and growing challenges associated with freight costs”.

The price increases will be effective 1 January 2019, or as contracts allow.

The expected increases across each product lines include:

• Coagulants: 10 – 15%
• Flocculants: 10 – 20%
• Defoamers: 5 – 15%
• Biocides: 5 – 15%
• Alkaline cleaners: 10 – 20%

In addition to product price increases, Buckman will implement freight delivery increases in certain regions as required.
