NEW YORK Severstal North
America Inc. has joined other domestic steelmakers in
increasing its prices for flat-rolled products by $20 per ton
($1 per hundredweight).
The Dearborn, Mich.-based
steelmaker has increased base prices for all carbon flat-rolled
steel products effective immediately, Severstal told customers
in an e-mail Monday. It didnt send out an official price
change notice, it said in the e-mail.
It follows similar increases in published prices late last
week by Nucor Corp. (
amm.com, Dec. 6) and ArcelorMittal USA Inc. and AK
Steel Corp. (
amm.com, Dec. 7).
