This price increase is a result of the continually rising cost of the raw material on the London Metal Exchange (LME), the global metal trading center. Another factor contributing to the price rise is pressure from lamination prices and the significant growth in energy and shipping costs. The price hikes, which may be as much as 15%, will take effect in March 2011.
