Top Folding Carton Converters — Clear Skies Ahead?
Things are looking good for folding carton converters in 2006.
In a July press release, the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) announced that folding carton shipments brought in about $4.7 billion and 2.9 million tons in the first half of the year. Shipments increased in dollars by 4.2 percent, and tons increased by 4.7 percent versus the same period last year. If the remainder of the year keeps in step with the first half, those numbers will pass those of 2005, which had decreased from the previous year.
