PAGE Still the Answer in Troubled TimesApril 24, 2018

At this point just about everyone reading column this has been affected by the tight newsprint market. And relief may still be six months away. In the meantime, PAGE is working with other associations and lobbying groups in an effort to try to reverse or at least mitigate the countervailing duty and antidumping penalties.

But challenges do create opportunities. To date we’re not aware of any PAGE member that has not received paper despite the heavy order rationing occurring in the present market. This creates the opportunity for us to highlight the value of the PAGE purchasing model and the leverage afforded to our members. If you’re not currently buying all of your newsprint through PAGE, now is an excellent time to have that discussion. We continue to move tons between vendors and have come up with some very interesting opportunities to secure new supplies at attractive prices.

And while we talk about newsprint a lot, there are certainly other opportunities beyond newsprint. We are actively signing up new vendors so that our members have more ways to grow revenue and reduce expenses. Be sure to check out Steve Schroeder’s column for more details on our most recently signed suppliers.
