AK Steel has advised its flat-rolled carbon steel customers that a $157 per ton surcharge will be added to invoices for products shipped in September 2005. The company also has advised its electrical steel customers that a $50 per ton surcharge will be added to invoices for electrical steel products shipped in September 2005. September surcharges for all stainless steel products can be found on the company's Web site.
The surcharges are based on reported prices for raw materials and energy used to manufacture the products, with the July 2005 purchase cost used to determine the September 2005 surcharges.
