Aug. 11, 2009 - Graphic Packaging International has announced a $40 per ton price increase for its coated recycled board (CRB) and uncoated recycled board (URB).
Graphic Packaging said in a press statement that the increase was necessary "to offset rapidly escalating recycled fiber costs and steady increases on other input costs."
According to the company, the price increase will be effective with shipments on or after September 1, 2009, and will apply to all grades supplied by mills in Pekin, IL; Middletown, OH; Kalamazoo, MI; Battle Creek, MI; Philadelphia, PA; Wabash, IN and Santa Clara, CA.
