5th February 2018

835M30 Surcharge Feb 18

Hillfoot bring you an update on the February 2018 surcharges for carbon and alloy steels.

Surcharges for carbon and alloy steel grades have risen for February 2018, following a further 5% increase in Scrap.

The Scrap surcharge climbed £11 to £220 per tonne - up from £148 a year ago - meaning rises for all engineering bar grades.

This has been accompanied by increases in a number of alloys, pushing up the surcharge for alloy grades still further.

Simon Taylor, Hillfoot’s Executive Director, explains: “Sustained high global demand for materials has continued to force up steel surcharges.

Scrap has moved up by a further £11 per tonne and alloys - in particular Nickel - have also increased.
