Caraustar Ups Price for All Recycled Paperboard Grades

Aug. 4, 2009 - Caraustar Industries said that it will increase prices by $40 per ton on all recycled paperboard grades produced by its mills, effective with shipments on and after August 24, 2009.

"This price increase is necessary due to the upward movement in recovered fiber costs during 2009 and recent increases in other input costs," said Greg A. Bartlett, vice president sales and marketing for Caraustar's Mill Group.

"Our mills are operating at high utilization rates due to increased demand," Bartlett added.

Caraustar Industries. is one of North America's largest integrated manufacturers of 100% recycled paperboard and converted paperboard products.
