Several interior door producers have increases prices
A number of German interior door suppliers claim to have now largely instituted mark-ups averaging 3% that they announced for the second quarter of this year. However, a few prices have not yet risen. Suppliers that charged more from 1 April or 1 May reported that implementing higher prices proved a little trickier than last year. These price hikes are being primarily fuelled by higher costs for adhesives, energy and logistics as well as a rise in wage costs at the end of last year. Prices for a number of types of wood-based panels have not increased significantly in the past few months. However, interior door producers feel that this still needs to happen given spiralling costs for these upstream products last year.
