(News from RISI) – In what appears to be the first official tissue paper price increase for consumer/retail products in three years in the USA, First Quality Tissue has announced an up to 8% price increase on its towel and tissue products.

“All orders placed after 1 July 2014 or shipped on or after 1 August 2014 will be invoiced at the increased prices,” the company said.

First Quality plans two new tissue paper machines in the next two years in the USA and has grown its capacity with two new PMs over the last three years at its manufacturing and converting line complex in Anderson, SC.

The company also operates two tissue paper PMs in Lock Haven, PA.
