Uncoated Price Increase Announced by ALL!

Last week we announced Domtar increased their price and, as assumed, most of the uncoated white paper mills joined Domtar in reporting a price increase for late February or early March. Most increases were $40/ton, the exception is Wausau which we reported as $60 for text and cover grades. Domtar and Boise told customers they would only increase cut-size business papers; however, International Paper, Glatfelter and Finch extended the increase to offset rolls, tag/index/file folder stock and other converting grades.
