NEW YORK DLA
Strategic Materials has offered more than 4,476 short tons of
high-carbon ferromanganese as the agency moves to a schedule
that sees the material put up for sale on a quarterly basis
rather than monthly.
ferromanganese consisted of three separate lots at the Fort
Belvoir, Va.-based agencys depot in Warren, Ohio. The
material was produced in Japan, Norway and the United Kingdom.
The agency was accepting bids for lots of at least 500 short
tons, as bidding closed 2 p.m. Eastern time Nov. 13.
An undisclosed buyer purchased 500 tons of high-carbon
ferromanganese in September (
amm.com, Oct. 8). No material was offered in
October, as the DLA rolled out a new Web-based sales portal (
amm.com, Oct. 1).
