Branded, wood fibre-based, easy-to-recycle cups manufactured from Kotkamills’ board are now used by Bentley Suomi. The tailor-made cups commemorate the luxury brand’s more than 100-year history. The history of Kotkamills, a specialist in wood-based consumer packaging, goes back even further: it will soon be 150 years since the sawmill was established. In addition to a long history, Kotkamills and Bentley are united by a strong commitment to building a more sustainable future – without compromising quality. The wood-based products are driving Bentley Suomi to the forefront of sustainable luxury. The high-quality branded cups reflect the sustainable and innovative use of natural resources, and they are safe to use and easy to recycle.
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.
Sonoco is the largest producer of paper-based tubes and cores in North America, which are used to serve the paper, textile, plastic film, and tape and specialty industries.
