Steel Prices

Late on Friday, Nucor announced a $35 a ton or 1.75 cwt. increase on beams and all mini mill products.

We expect all of the other major mills to follow suit.  

Here is a summary of increases since last fall:

Total Plate increases announced of $330 a ton or 16.50 cwt.

Total Sheet, Coil, and Strip Mill Plate increases announced of $220 a ton or 11.00 cwt.

Total Tubing increases announced of $340 a ton or 17.00 cwt.

Total Beam increases of $225 a ton or 11.25 cwt.

Total Mini Mill (Angles, Flats, Channels, and Rounds) increases of $135 a ton or 6.75 cwt

 

Lead times are also an issue as mills adapt to providing types/sizes they may not have produced before.
