North American West Coast mills match eastern US $30/tonne summer newsprint price hike (RISI)

Two North American West Coast paper makers have told customers they will match the $30/tonne mid-summer newsprint price increases that were set in the US last week by eastern mills, contacts say.

Norpac announced April 29 that it would increase 30-lb newsprint prices in two $15/tonne installments on June 1 and July 1, in line with the hike led by Resolute Forest Products and separately supported by both White Birch and Kruger.

Sources say Catalyst Paper told its customers on May 3 that it too will implement $15 increases on 30-lb newsprint, effective on June 15 and July 15.
