Packaging Première exhibition has been a great success last year gathering designers, advertising agencies, brand owners and the major players of the sector. This year the number of converters and exhibitors has considerably increased. Kotkamills is confirming its strong presence with its high performance virgin fibre folding boxboards AEGLE® White and AEGLE® Pro. Most of the key customers in cosmetic, body care, pharma and luxury packaging will be also present with their own booths or visiting Kotkamills and Sapii Srl representing the Kotkamills products in Italy. A big success is again expected with Kotkamills’ AEGLE® brand recognized as a main player in these sectors.
Caraustar Industries, Inc. announced a price increase of $50 per ton on all uncoated recycled paperboard (URB) grades. The increase on the uncoated recycle board grades will be effective starting with shipments on July 9, 2018.
The increase is in response to strong market dynamics and inflationary cost pressures in transportation, chemicals and other recycled paperboard input materials.
