NEW YORK SSAB Americas is
raising published prices on a number of steel plate products by
$50 per ton, it said in a letter to customers dated Nov.
The latest increase applies to
all new and existing noncontract orders set to ship the week of
Dec. 30 and beyond for as-rolled carbon and high-strength,
low-alloy plate; normalized plate; alloy plate, including
quenched and tempered; cut-to-length plate; and hot-rolled coil
greater than 72 inches wide.
Any unconfirmed orders are
subject to requote, the company said.
This follows an increase of the same amount less than two
weeks ago by the Lisle, Ill.-based subsidiary of Swedens
SSAB AB, effective Dec. 2 (
amm.com, Nov. 9).
