May 2021 Aluminum UpdateMay 3, 2021
Current material costs are continuing to trend upwards. The month of April closed with a Midwest Average published price of $1.29 per pound (rounded 2 places), which was up $0.11 per pound from March. It is looking like the price is continuing to climb into May as well. We understand that the increase in price is not ideal, but we are still honoring all order prices at time of orders being placed. We also know that as demand has increased, lead-times have also moved as well. We are still committed to trying to keep our lead-times the fastest in the industry, even through these unexpected (and maybe exhausting/exhilarating?) times.
