“Neenah Paper is increasing its prices in response to the continuing rise in the costs of raw materials, specifically the unprecedented increases in latex,” said Dennis Runsten, president of Neenah Paper Technical Products US. “The suppliers of our petrochemicals have been forced to implement a series of rapid and significant price increases that limit our ability to mitigate them.”
Neenah Paper manufactures specialty products used in a variety of applications, including filtration, printing and writing, and as backing and component materials for specialized industrial and consumer applications. Products are marketed under such brands as Classic, Environment, Starwhite, Gessner, Jet-Pro SS, and Varitess. The company has manufacturing operations in the US and Germany, and about 500,000 acres of timberland in Nova Scotia, Canada.
