Citing higher raw material costs, hollow structural sections (HSS) mills have boosted prices by $60 per ton ($3 per hundredweight).

The move is aimed at keeping pace with recently announced price increases on hot-rolled coil, the substrate used to make HSS. Coil mills have announced several increases in recent weeks (AMM, Dec. 6).

HSS mills last increased prices by $40 per ton ($2 per cwt) in mid-November (AMM, Nov. 18).....
