Sonoco Announces Price Increase For Paperboard Tubes And Cores

HARTSVILLE, S.C. — February 3, 2021— Sonoco today 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 March 1, 2021.

“This price increase is necessary due to continued increases in costs for uncoated recycled paperboard (URB), our primary raw material. URB demand remains very strong, and the supply in the marketplace is extremely tight,” said Mike Thompson, director of Sales and Marketing for Sonoco’s North America Tubes and Cores Division.
