Raw materials shortages leads to price increases at Koenig & Bauer

Koenig & Bauer

Koenig & Bauer has announced a price adjustment for its entire product portfolio.

The reduced availability of raw materials such as copper, plastics, additives, sheet metal and wood, and higher shipping and logistics costs require an adjustment in prices. Another reason is the global chip shortage, which is leading to reduced capacities and long lead times for industrial customers, including those outside the automotive sector.

Worldwide, prices for many industrial metals and electronics have risen rapidly. Even wood, which is needed for packaging for transport, is in short supply

“The price adjustment comes in an environment of increasingly scarce resources and is a necessary step to enable us to continue offering our customers the quality, customised solutions and reliable service they expect from us,” says Ralf Sammeck, Member of the Executive Board at Koenig & Bauer.

“The global challenges facing the industry would have to be mastered together in order to maintain our innovative strength.”
