Agfa is increasing the prices of its offset plates at a global level. Soaring input costs, particularly relevant to aluminum, energy and packaging materials, in combination with rising freight rates due to global logistic constraints make price increases unavoidable, the company said in a press release. Prices of offset plates will therefore increase between five and 10 per cent, taking effect on April 1, 2021.
“Despite internal cost reductions, the magnitude of rising prices is no longer sustainable. The price increase applied to our customers will be partly offset, as printers will benefit from higher aluminum prices when they recycle their used plates,” said Agfa.
