On April 21st, 2017, President Trump initiated a Department of Commerce investigation under a little used statute from 1962. Read the details on Section 232, and its consequences, on commerce.gov. In summary, a Section 232 investigation will rule on whether importing steel from foreign mills is a threat to US National Security.
It is clear that any ruling will have an additional impact on steel coming into the U.S. from foreign sources; however, there are events already coming into effect in reaction to the anticipated Section 232 rulings:
- Several foreign steel mills that were still permitted to ship into the U.S. have stopped taking orders for shipping to the U.S.
- U.S. Mills have announced price increases in the month of June
This is not fake news, and it is not a fake call of “wolf”. To foreign steel, President Trump is the wolf and he has the strong support of the U.S.Department of Commerce.
Due to the variables listed above, please be aware that many steel manufacturing companies in our industry have announced price increases for July.
The Trump Administration and Department of Commerce ruling will be coming soon. Phillips will continue to act in a responsible manner and give you the best price available.
