As we are all aware, steel prices have been very up and down throughout 2016-2017, and Jenks & Cattell Engineering in the West Midlands understand that steel prices are likely to rise once again for the first quarter of 2018, beginning in January.
Mild Steel for example is expected to rise following an upward trend by £20-£40 per tonne.
With material cost increases expected, Jenks & Cattell urge customers to provide production plans and schedules to ensure cost efficiency and allow us purchase at the very best prices for our customers and avoid reflecting any increases.
Instead of reserving your production plans until 2018, please get ahead of the January increases and discuss potential supply opportunities and timeframes with our sales team to ensure the best costs of your metal pressed parts and welded assemblies for 2018.
Please get in touch via 01902 305530 or firstname.lastname@example.org – we will be in a position to provide benchmark costs and quotations for live and new projects for any sheet metal manufacturing requirements. For more information, on our metal pressings, presswork, laser cutting, fabrication and welding services, please contact our team.
