    News: Based on the introduction of the
    consumption tax, Beckers China has officially announced a 4% increase in the price of its sales from April 1, 2015, with existing sales contracts unaffected. Dr. Kober, Global President and Managing Director of Consumer Electronics Coatings of the
    Berg Group, explained: "In order to protect the environment, Berger has been working to reduce VOC content in its products over the past few years and has successfully introduced low-volatile organic compound systems or volatile organic compound-free systems such as water-based
    -industrial coatings
    in China. Therefore, we greatly appreciate the government departments on volatile organic matter content of more than 42% of the paint to levy a consumption tax, which will further promote the promotion of environmentally friendly products. However, given that most Chinese coating manufacturers do not have the appropriate equipment to use low VOC coatings or
    water-based coatings
    and will continue to use more than 42% of volatile organic compounds, Berger will continue to supply customers and transfer the increased costs to clients.
    Beckers Group is the world's leading supplier of industrial coatings for coils, heavy machinery and equipment, trucks, trains and consumer electronics.
