The fabrication price for plain, shate, industrial and foil container products and other selected aluminium specialty sheets will increase by five percent. The price change is effective immediately for all new orders not covered by current supply agreements.

"This price adjustment reflects strong demand for flat-rolled aluminium products in Europe and increasing production costs in the industry," said Erwin Mayr, senior vice president, Novelis and president, Novelis Europe.

Speciality products at Novelis include a wide range of high-quality aluminium coil and sheet products. They are designed to meet the requirements of a variety of customers in building and construction, industrial, architectural, printing, foil and transportation sectors.
