RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tredegar Corporation (NYSE: TG, also the “Company” or “Tredegar”) today reported that its Bonnell Aluminum business unit announced that it will implement a selling price increase of $0.035 per pound and an additional 5% on fabrication and finishing services effective on shipments beginning January 6, 2020, or as permissible by contract. The Company estimates that approximately 20 – 25% of Bonnell Aluminum’s net sales relate to applicable value-added fabrication and finishing services.
