Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

PaperWorks Industries, Philadelphia, Pa., USA, this week announced price increases of $45 per ton for all grades of coated recycled paperboard (CRB) and $60 per ton for uncoated recycled paperboard (URB). This increase, which the company attributes to" rapidly escalating input costs," will be effective with shipments on and after April 5. This change applies to all North American customers.

"PWI will continue to minimize these increases with ongoing cost savings initiatives as well as provide leading quality and service for all of our paperboard products," said Mark P. Roy, senior VP, Commercial Development. PaperWorks Industries' Paperboard Division manufactures approximately 300,000 tons of 100% recycled paperboard per year.
