Lead times affected by raw material shortage

Dear customer,


The current situation on the global steel market is exceptional. Due to the decline in demand caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the production capacity of steel manufacturers was reduced considerably during 2020. As the markets recover, the production capacity of European steel manufacturers along with declined imports do not meet the increase in demand. The market prices have risen in an unprecedented way and the shortage of raw materials is affecting the lead times of steel products.


Unfortunately, due to the current situation, we are unable to meet our usual delivery time promises for all of our products. We apologize for the inconvenience and will do our best to ensure that our service level will not be affected by the difficult situation. Please contact our customer service for more detailed information about delivery times.
