Sonoco Announces Price Increase for Paperboard Tubes and Cores
April 26, 2021
HARTSVILLE, S.C. (News release) -- Sonoco announced it will raise the price for all paperboard tubes and cores by a minimum of 6 percent, effective with shipments in the United States and Canada, on or after May 24, 2021.
"This price increase is necessary due to continued increases in costs for uncoated recycled paperboard (URB), our primary raw material which remains in very tight supply. Additionally, we are feeling significant inflationary pressures in adhesives, packaging and logistics costs," said Mike Thompson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sonoco's North America Tubes and Cores Division.
