Bostik announces currency surcharge in Sweden

Dear customer,

In 2019, the Swedish krona has continued its strongly negative trend. In 2017 and 2018, Bostik absorbed this currency decline through cost saving measures. However we now have to act to ensure our quality, service and margin. From June 17, 2019, we will apply a charge of 4% foreign exchange supplement on the entire Swedish market. The currency supplement is temporary and will be adjusted / removed when the Swedish krona returns to 2018 average levels.

Best regards,
