“We had a very strong quarter in all aspects of our operations. Our mills ran extremely well setting an all-time production record, and both our containerboard and corrugated products demand remained strong. We implemented a $50 per ton domestic containerboard price increase during the third quarter and are now in the process of implementing a corresponding price increase for corrugated products, which we expect to essentially complete in the fourth quarter,” Mark W. Kowlzan, CEO, said.
