Georgia Pacific Joins Longview Containerboard Pricing

Georgia Pacific just joined Longview with a $50/ton (East Coast) and $70/ton
(West Coast) containerboard price hike for January. This gives the hike announcement more
credibility, as Georgia Pacific is large producer. The company, owned by privately-
held Koch Industries, is similar in size to Temple-Inland and trails
only International Paper and Smurfit-Stone in the North American
containerboard market.
