NEWSLETTER MARCH 2021: CURRENT INVENTORY/RISING STEEL COST UPDATE

Below is tidbit from Butler Manufacturing in Feb 2021 regarding rising steel costs:

The US steel market continues to be very volatile with prices rising rapidly in the past several weeks. This is the result of steel mill closures earlier in 2020 combined with an increase in demand from across a variety of industries. Consequently, mills are reporting longer lead times and allocations.

The Graph below shows US hot-rolled steel coil has risen to over $1100/tn and is expected to continue higher into March. Ultimately, the projection anticipates a slight retrace and then a plateau going into summer however, this still represents a more than 100% increase from the August lows.

As equipment prices have continued to rise, inventories from most of our suppliers are depleting and lead times have continued to lengthen.  HFS has made an effort to purchase inventory throughout the winter in preparation for any potential shortages.  Below is a brief list of the various items we currently have ordered or in stock.  Please contact us for more details or additional products. Additionally, we have listed some estimated lead times on various equipment and suppliers.
