The 2nd proposed PE increase for 2013 is all but certain. Resin suppliers have implemented an increase effective the 1st of March. PE and bag film producers are being forced to raise prices as well.
Corrugated prices are also set to rise the beginning of April. International Paper and RockTenn have announced $50.00/ton increases effective with shipments on or after April 1st. However, given the past history of announced increases, only time will tell if the new pricing holds.
