To keep our customers informed, we wanted you to know that we have received price increase notices from several steel suppliers.
The next steel increase will be in the 11% to 13% range, effective on all orders entered after April 6, 2018.
The new pricing is due to new tariffs being added on all steel imports. Section 232 will put a tariff on all imported steel which has created a volatile steel market in the foreign and domestic arenas.
We are forced to pass along the increases as they come to us, but want to keep you informed as market conditions change.
If you are in a position to make a decision, now is your time to save money on your steel building purchase. Once the building has been ordered for production the price is locked in and will be protected through shipment as long as the building is not delayed by the customer.
We appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.
