News & Announcements
Carbon price announcements made by domestic plate and sheet mills were up in Apr '14 with extended lead times. Tube prices are also rising based on increased sheet costs, but merchant bar and beam prices remained flat. Scrap prices increased by $10/ton in early Apr '14, but are expected to move sideways in May '14.
Carbon price announcements made by domestic mills were comprehensively up from October 2013 through January 2014. Some mills have announced additional increases for beam and merchant bar products in March 2014, whereas, pricing deterioration has occurred in sheet products in the past month.
After months of work we are pleased to release our new Farwest Steel website!
