Sourcing of stainless steel and aluminum are our passion. Whether in coils, sheets or plates, tubes, pipes, rods, wires or profiles. Hot and cold rolled. In standard grades and alloys. But we also find the special, the rare and hard to get items for you.
As an entrepreneur, purchaser and also salesperson, you certainly know the problems in the reliable procurement of raw materials, such as stainless steel and aluminum.
While in the beginning it was only Anti-dumping and Countervailing Duties, from 2018 Section 232 duties were added. Starting in 2020, the pandemic hit and the United States faced a whole new set of challenges in sourcing stainless steel and aluminum.
A consistent shortage of supply within the United States, but also in the rest of the world, met immensely increasing demand. Not only in raw materials, but also in logistics.
And now rising energy costs, new market protections, carbon border taxes, the war in Europe, and the uncertainties of purchasing Chinese aluminum and stainless steel in light of the new U.S. Forced Labor Act UFLPA, which makes importing from China almost a gamble.
To date, the effort and expense, as well as complexity, in sourcing is significantly higher than it was in 2019, putting a strain on many companies and employees. Through this eternal struggle, you miss opportunities. And what worked yesterday is outdated today and completely different tomorrow.
