In France, GD board suppliers had started to become more vocal in stating their demands in September, which were planned to take effect for deliveries in October or November.

They want as much as €40/t and negotiations on the hike gathered pace in the middle of September. Among those not involved in the current round of hikes was one major manufacturer along with a few others.
