Caraustar Industries to Raise Price of Uncoated Recycled Paperboard

Jan. 31, 2006 - Caraustar Industries today announced a price increase on all uncoated recycled paperboard grades and mill converted products.

Prices will increase by $40 per ton, Caraustar said.

The price increase will be implemented in two stages. The previously announced and implemented $25 per ton energy surcharge will be converted to a $25 per ton price increase, effective with orders shipped on and after February 10, 2006. An additional $15 per ton price increase will be implemented effective with orders shipped on or after March 10, 2006.

Caraustar said the price increase is necessary as critical energy-related costs remain high without expectation that these costs will return to historic levels.
