Caraustar Industries has made a price hike of $75 per ton on all uncoated recycled paperboard (URB) grades beginning with shipments on 3 April 2017.
The increase is in response to the additional increased raw materials and other costs in 2017 to date, including the various grades of recycled fiber used in producing uncoated recycled paperboard.
