Caraustar to Increase Price for Clay Coated Grades

Aug. 9, 2011 - Caraustar Industries said that it will implement a $40 per ton price increase for all clay coated grades produced from the company's Tama Mill, effective on and after Sept. 12, 2011.

There will be an additional increase in existing upcharges for 16pt and 30pt calipers, Caraustar said.

Caraustar said the price hike is due to increasing costs, especially in chemicals, fiber, and freight.

Tama Paperboard is Caraustarís 100% recycled clay coated mill located in Tama, Iowa (USA). The mill produces over 70,000 tons per year of coated 100% recycled board, servicing a broad range of markets.
