AK Steel has advised its flat-rolled carbon steel customers that a $228 per ton surcharge will be added to invoices for products shipped in December 2005. The company also has advised its electrical steel customers that a $330 per ton surcharge will be added to invoices for electrical steel products shipped in December 2005. December surcharges for the stainless steel products the company produces can be found on its Web site.
The surcharges are based on reported prices for raw materials and energy used to manufacture the products, with the October 2005 purchase cost used to determine the December 2005 surcharges.
