Prices have been steadily climbing, and have jumped a couple of times. Due to climbing steel prices, orders are also coming in quickly, trying to beat further price increases. That means lead times for construction (Ground Storage Tanks) and fabrication (Pressure Vessels) are increasing. We are also hearing from suppliers that due to new tariffs on Mexico and – more importantly – Canada, regardless of price, availability could quickly become an issue. Bulldog Steel has been prepared for this kind of issue. Around 2008, availability and escalating prices were a challenge that we will always be better because of. We made arrangements years ago to insure we had availability during challenging times. In addition, we have for a few months ordered steel for projects long before we have approvals, with the trust and anticipation that comes with 44 years of service and relationships.
Even with lead times growing, we are still ready to deliver a few! The biggest challenge that remains is how to navigate fork lifts around all the steel sitting around….. We love the challenge! Thanks for your continued trust and business! And patience.
