CHICAGO — Keystone Steel & Wire Co. plans to boost prices on all wire rod products by $50 per ton ($2.50 per hundredweight) effective with shipments Dec. 1.

The move by the Peoria, Ill.-based steelmaker, announced in a Nov. 14 letter to customers, follows similar wire rod price hikes slated by other domestic producers, including Gerdau Long Steel North America, Tampa, Fla. ( amm.com, Nov. 14); Nucor Corp., Charlotte, N.C.; and ArcelorMittal USA Inc., Chicago ( amm.com, Nov. 13).

Though Keystone did not provide a reason for its increase, the latest round of price hikes follows recent gains in domestic scrap tags ( amm.com, Nov. 12).
