WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - Packaging business Sonoco (SON) said it would raise the price for all grades of uncoated recycled paperboard or URB products by $25 per ton, effective for shipments in the United States and Canada beginning February 11, 2013.
Marty Pignone, vice president, Primary Materials Group, North America, noted, 'This price increase is necessary to recover continued inflationary pressure from non-fiber-related costs, including chemicals, energy, freight, repair materials, labor and other expenses.'
