Lecta announces a price increase of 12% to 14% on all its CWF grades in sheets and reels effective from new orders.

This price increase is essential in order to offset the exceptional increase in raw materials driven by the soaring price of gas, electricity and chemical costs.

These new quotations will be subject to the addition of surcharges due to the uncontrollable and unforeseeable increasing prices of gas and electricity.

In the current scenario of constant review of prices by our energy suppliers, Lecta's cost structure has suffered a significant downturn which is not sustainable without the relevant pass-through of these increases into the prices of our products by adding surcharges.

These surcharges will be subject to review each month in accordance with the relevant energy prices of the immediately prior month.

Lecta sales teams will be immediately informing our customers on the new set of conditions that Lecta is forced to apply to mitigate all the costs inflation.
