Caraustar announces 7% price bump on paper tube, core

June 19, 2018  By PrintAction Staff

Caraustar Industries has announced a minimum price increase of 7.0 percent on all paper tube and core products, starting with shipments on July 18.

The North American integrated manufacturer of 100 percent recycled paperboard and converted paperboard products says the increase is in response to strong market dynamics and inflationary cost pressures in transportation – both inbound and outbound – and chemicals.

Headquartered in Austell, Ga., Caraustar serves the four principal recycled boxboard product end-use markets: tubes and cores; folding cartons; gypsum facing paper and specialty paperboard products. It operates five Canadian locations in Delta, B.C., and Scarborough, Mississauga and Kingston, Ont., and Winnipeg, Man.
