Manufacturers of sack kraft paper were going through their traditionally slowest time of the year in the fourth quarter when capacity utilisation was concerned. As usual for the season,

Demand from the building materials industry decreases in particular in the cold months. Delivery periods have continued to shrink and were 2 to 3 weeks for brown paper whereas up to 5 weeks was still being quoted for white grades in December.
