Corus Long Products announces immediate price rise

In reaction to higher input costs Corus Long Products is raising prices for a wide range of its products by at least £60 per tonne.

The increase takes into account rising international demand and prices for the affected products, and will align Corus’ prices with those in the rest of Europe.

The price rise applies to all of Corus’ sections, plate, wire rod, bar, special profiles and merchant billet output and will start to take effect immediately for all orders that are not part of existing contractual agreements.
