Steel on the way up again as fresh price hike takes structural steel to £800 per tonne in the UK.

British Steel has announced another big price rise for structural steel with immediate effect.

The £50 per tonne increase is the seventh rise since last Summer and has left specialist contractors warning they can no longer absorb the shock rises.
The latest increase takes the price of standard sections to around £800 a tonne.
Since May 2020 steel prices have risen by around 40% with the scale and speed of the rises unprecedented.

Last month steelwork contractor Billington warned the upward trend in prices showed no signs of easing.
It also highlighted challenges from the restricted supply of cold-rolled steel and Brexit-related issues with imports.
While steel experienced price jumps early on, pressure is now growing on all of construction’s main structural materials as timber prices also skyrocket and cement shortages and rebar rises impact on concrete products.

Recent spate of increases
£/ tonne rise: July +£30; August +£30; Nov +£40, Dec +£80; Jan +£50; March +£30; May +£50

Hi All, it’s Friday thank God.

We have set up a separate WhatsApp Group which is available for companies wishing to advertise their services or products which are steel related.

Please keep this Group here free from commercial adverts.
Selling that used side-loader or Pressbreak is grand and the other Group is there for all commercial adds.

We will add you to the group but feel free to leave but you could miss that bargain.

We want to keep this Group free for queries, sourcing, information and the like that we feel is helpful to all.
Any suggestions to improve will be welcome.

The new group link is

Thank you and have a good weekend.
