Hot Steel News August 2012
Greetings and best wishes from your friends at Willbanks Metals!
Well it is hard to believe that summer break is almost over and it is time for many of our children and friends to head back to school.
We hope you have had a great summer. Please be careful out there in the August heat and watch out for the kids as they head back to school.
At Willbanks we have also been busy going to school on our new company-wide software system. We appreciate your patience during this time, as we strive to improve, in order to serve you better.
Trending UPThe latest news on pricing trends:
Pricing over the last 45 days has been on a slow upward trend. Most of the major mills have notified us of price increases in the $40 per ton range. This has been seen in all commodities with plate leading the way and structural and tubing mills following suit. All indicators are that this round of increases will stick. However, there are mixed opinions on where prices go from here. Will there be more price increases or will the market stay at this level for the next 60 days or so?
We would love to hear your take on things. How is your business activity and what are your seeing with price trends? Send your feedback to [email protected]
