December 2021 Nickel & Surcharge Update

December 2021 Update


Thanks for reading the Ram Alloys Monthly Nickel and 316L s/c update, intended to help our valued customers make educated business decisions.

Quota Uncertainty and Rising Surcharges:

  • Rolling into 2022 with historically high prices, historically low inventories, and historic supply chain uncertainty.
  • That said, it's been an amazing year, and we appreciate all the support from our customers, vendors, and employees.
  • In a world full of changes, the one constant remains: we will conquer 2022...TOGETHER!
