Suominen, headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, is announcing general surcharges on all of its products in North America effective immediately in response to significant unexpected increases in raw materials, energy and freight costs

“We have done all we can to mitigate these increases on behalf of our customers but can no longer absorb the full extent of them,” said Lynda A. Kelly, Suominen’s SVP Americas. “We are living in an unusual time in the nonwovens industry with unprecedented and unexpected cost increases accompanied by volatility in demand patterns and supply chain disruptions. We understand circumstances are extremely challenging and we remain committed to serving our customers during this difficult period.” 

The manufacturer of nonwoven roll goods for wipes and other applications had net sales of €443.2 million in 2021 and employs over 700 people in Europe and in the Americas.
