Henkel to pass on rise in costs
Henkel announces price increases for its industrial products in Europe
Effective February 1, 2007 Henkel increases the prices for its industrial products and solutions in Europe by 8 to 12 percent depending on the product category. The price increases are due to the ongoing rise in the cost of raw materials, packaging, transportation and energy which affects adhesives, sealants and surface treatment products for industrial applications. Despite continuous efforts to reduce costs Henkel feels compelled to take this step in order to further ensure an optimum quality in its innovative and trend-setting products, services and solutions.
