Sonoco implementing price increases for all rigid paperboard containers in North America

Sonoco announced it is implementing price increases for all round composite cans and shaped rigid paperboard containers in North America by a minimum of 5 percent.

The increase is effective with shipments beginning April 15, 2017.

“This price adjustment is necessary to recover continuing cost inflation, particularly in uncoated recycled paperboard, a primary raw material,” said Jeff Tomaszewski, vice president and general manager for Sonoco’s Rigid Paper and Closures North America Division. 

Sonoco is the largest producer of rigid paper-based round and shaped containers globally. 

Founded in 1899, Sonoco is a global provider of a variety of consumer packaging, industrial products, protective packaging and display and packaging supply chain services.

With annualized net sales of approximately $4.8 billion, the Company has 20,000 employees working in more than 300 facilities in 33 countries, serving many of the world’s best known brands in some 85 nations.
