Novelis Announces Price Increase On Pre-Anodized Aluminium Sheet Products

ZURICH, Oct. 13,  2014  -- Novelis, the world leader in aluminium rolling and recycling, today announced price increases on its pre-anodized aluminium sheet products. The 10-15 percent price increase will go into effect on January 1, 2015 on all new orders not covered by existing supply agreements. This increase is due to the recently announced processing cost increase of our continuous anodizing partner, Coil S.A.

“Overall demand of our premium pre-anodized product range remains strong across the globe,” said Erwin Mayr, Senior Vice President, Novelis and President, Novelis Europe. “The price adjustment reflects the increase in our production costs combined with tighter rolling capacities throughout the industry.” 

Novelis produces specialized aluminium products to meet exacting requirements of the construction industry, while enabling architects to bring their most innovative and ambitious designs to life in an eco-friendly and cost-effective way.
