American Stainless Supports Alternate Fuel

American Stainless & Supply recently attended the 2007 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo held in San Antonio TX. 

As a sponsor and exhibitor, American Stainless was proud to be among the hundreds in attendance gaining awareness of the benefits and available resources needed to produce biodiesel as an alternate fuel.

Market Analysis: February 2007

Market Analysis: December 2006

Base prices on stainless pipe appear to have stabilized and we anticipate no changes thru the first quarter of 2007. Surcharges for December increased another 5% for 316/L and 8% for 304/L (see graph) before pulling back slightly in January.

Because of the many large industrial projects set to begin construction next year, we anticipate serious availability issues in 2007. World wide demand for process piping remains very strong with ethanol, biogen, waste water, petrochemical and refinery projects leading the way. This, coupled with low...
