Rising paperboard prices will soon have paper and board producers paying more for the cores and tubes used to roll their products. Sonoco will raise the price for all paperboard tubes and cores by 4% for shipments in Canada and the U.S., effective Feb. 18.

“This price increase is necessary to recover recently announced paperboard price increases and other inflationary inputs impacting our converting cost," said James Harrell, vice-president, tubes and cores, North America.

Sonoco is the largest producer of paper-based tubes and cores in North America which are used to serve the paper, textiles, plastic films and tape and specialty industries.
