“Continued inflationary pressure, predominantly in energy and chemicals, has resulted in paperboard capacity being taken out of the market most recently in Finland, Italy, France and the U.K.,” said Smith. “Our business has maintained its commitment to reduce operating costs in order to offset this inflation, however, we are unable to continue to absorb all of these increases.”
