HARTSVILLE, S.C., Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sonoco (NYSE: SON) will raise surcharges to 13.4 percent for its nailed wood reels and 8.8 percent for plywood reels, effective Jan. 1, 2013. The surcharges are necessary to offset continued increases in lumber and plywood costs.
"Lumber and plywood pricing continue to rise against traditional downward trends normally seen in the late fall and winter," said Greg Powell, general manager, Sonoco Reels. "Lumber prices have increased for six consecutive weeks to reach a new high, while plywood pricing has continued to rise due to tightening supply and improving demand. As a result, we must adjust our reel surcharges accordingly."

Reels produced by Sonoco are used by the wire and cable industry to serve the power transmission and distribution; telecommunications; commercial and industrial building; oil and gas; mining and marine industries.
