Sonoco-Alcore to Implement Additional Price Increases for Tubes & Cores in Europe

Sonoco-Alcore S.a.r.l. today announced it will again raise prices for paper-based tubes and cores, effective from shipments beginning on 24th July 2017.

"Prices of coreboard continue to rise, driven by fundamental changes in recovered paper markets. As this trend continues, we are forced to keep pace and apply a further increase to our tubes and cores," said Karsten Kemmerling, Director of Sales and Marketing - Tubes and Cores, Europe. "We continue to invest in our operations to generate manufacturing productivity, but this will not cover the significant increase in material costs. The outlook for the second half of this year could well be a further tightening of material availability and inevitably further price increases for our base raw material."

Pöyry's Operational Excellence service can reduce productions costs by 20-50 euros per tonne of pulp

Inefficiencies of energy and raw material usage of a plant can be identified by analysing its operations. This helps to plan controlled production increase and operating costs reduction without additional investment.

Pöyry offers Operational Excellence services that help Pulp and Paper companies to improve their industrial processes. The service can potentially reduce production costs between 20 and 50 euros per tonne of pulp, ensuring a significant competitive advantage in the international pulp market.

According to Gabriel Sousa, Principal Consultant at Pöyry Management Consulting, "even plants that have recently started operations and therefore have new equipment cannot always extract maximum performance due to inefficiencies in the production and management processes". Sousa points out that it is necessary to evaluate each sub-process and even the production as a whole in order to identify improvement gaps and reduce costs, avoid losses and optimise production. "Many of the improvements we have identified do not require additional investment", explains Sousa.
