NWUPC, the contracting authority for the Cut Paper & Specialist Print Paper, have been notified by Antalis that they are proposing a price increase and had information that Elliot Baxter and Premier Paper have approached members directly on the same matter.

To date no details have been provided by these or any of the suppliers on the Framework and therefore no changes to prices are effective.

Helen Dodd-Williams at NWUPC has contacted each of these three to ask for detailed information and justification.

As soon as this has been provided we will work to mitigate any increases. We will let you know the outcome of the discussions but can members please be aware that until further advised please do not accept any price increases, until they have been notified by the Consortia.
