    We have received notice from our corrugated sheet supplier that all major container board suppliers have announced a price increase of $50 per ton effective ranging from March 1, 2013 to April 1, 2013. Our sheet supplier has announced that our sheet cost will go up on May 28, 2013.

    As expected, Pulp & Paper Week published the announcement of a $50 per ton price increase in their April 19, 2013 edition, Vol. 35, No. 15.

    Now that the increase has been published we must announce a 10% increase effective May 28, 2013.

    Corrugated has been a proven packaging material for many years due to its design flexibility, ready availability, and cost-effective performance. One of the most valued features of corrugated packaging is its ability to be custom designed to suit specific applications, whatever the product and supply chain’s unique requirements. For example, in environments where protection from water, ice, and moisture is needed, waxed corrugated has historically been the best solution. While waxed corrugated packaging is a proven performer, retailers’ desires for more sustainable and recyclable packaging have led to development of new wax alternatives. To assure that packaging meets claims of repulpability and recyclability the corrugated industry developed standard testing and certification procedures in 2005. They require these alternatives to be tested and allow them to be certified recyclable if they pass the required protocol.
