US Steel and Steel Dynamics (SDI) Raise Flat Rolled Steel Prices
Steel Market Update sources began advising us this afternoon of new pricing levels being offered out of U.S. Steel on hot rolled, cold rolled, galvanized and Galvalume steel. Like ArcelorMittal, U.S. Steel has come out with specific base price requirements by product.
U.S. Steel is asking for the following:
Hot Rolled Steel = $37.00/cwt base ($740 per ton)
Cold Rolled Steel = $42.00/cwt base ($840 per ton)
Galvanized Steel = $42.00/cwt base + applicable extras.
Galvalume Steel = $42.50/cwt base + applicable extras.
As always, these are offers and subject to competitive pressures. Actual transaction prices can vary.
We also heard from our sources Steel Dynamics Industries (SDI) has raised their prices by $40 per ton.
