Industrial packaging company Mauser (Brühl / Germany; www.mausergroup.com) is exploring alternatives for price adjustments in a bid to minimise the disruption caused by volatile raw material prices. We would like to improve the situation in a joint effort with our customers, offering new solutions that minimise the distortion effect both for increasing and for decreasing raw material prices, explained CEO Clemens Willée.
Two new models have been developed. The first involves responding to pricing indices at closer intervals. The second involves a debit/credit system in which prices would be set for a period of six months on the basis of the current index.
