Price increase for carbon steel flat products
ThyssenKrupp Stahl AG will raise its prices for carbon flat steel products by ?20 ? ?30/t in the 4th quarter 2005. In recent weeks, the market has stabilized and stocks at Western European customers have increasingly returned to normal levels. In implementing the price increases, which are urgently required due to high raw material costs, ThyssenKrupp Stahl will consistently apply its policy of ?price before volume?. A further price increase for the 1st quarter 2006 is under consideration.
