NEW YORK Nucor
Corp. has increased transaction prices by a minimum of $30 per
ton for all new orders of carbon, alloy and heat-treated plate,
effective immediately, the Charlotte, N.C.-based company said
in a July 11 letter to customers.
AMMs assessed steel plate prices have
softened in recent weeks, although some sources previously
indicated that if the sheet market picks up it may give a boost
to plate (
