HELSINKI, March 19, 2014 (Press Release) -Kemira will implement a price increase of up to 20% for selected paper colorants in Europe, Middle-East and Africa. The adjustment will be implemented immediately or as the existing contracts allow. The price adjustment is a result of increases in all major cost drivers including raw materials, energy and transportation.

Kemira has continuously rationalized operations and reduced fixed costs, but has now reached a point when a price increase for selected colorants is necessary to secure our position as a strong paper chemicals supplier.
