NEW YORK — At least five tubular product mills are increasing prices by $20 per ton effective with shipments Dec. 16.

Structural pipe and tube mill Atlas Tube Inc., a subsidiary of Chicago-based JMC Steel Group Inc., said in a Nov. 15 letter to customers that its increase on all hollow structural sections (HSS) shapes up through 22 inches square (squares and equivalent rectangles) as well as all HSS rounds up to 20 inches in outside diameter will apply to all unconfirmed quotes and contracts.

The move was followed Nov. 18 by tube and pipe maker American Tube Manufacturing Inc. and Southland Tube Inc., both based in Birmingham, Ala.; Chicago-based Maruichi Leavitt Pipe & Tube LLC; and Concord, Ontario-based Welded Tube of Canada Ltd.

Maruichi Leavitt, which according to its website makes structural, mechanical and HI-Y 50 pipe-size tubing, said that its increase is applicable to all products and size ranges; Welded Tube of Canada said its increase applies to HSS and mechanical tube products; and Southland said its hike is applicable to mechanical, structural and pipe products.
