Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

LWC demand remains soft and prices are under pressure, Wilde reports, noting that No. 5 40-lb offset roll estimated prices are down $5/ton to $905 - $945/ton, and in September shipments were -12.7% y/y and -8.1% YTD (AF&PA figures). Citing "demand headwinds" and rising input costs, Verso recently announced the shutdown of 90,000 tpy PM 2 at Bucksport, Maine.
