Title: RE: Lead time for steel

Shape availability is a difficult topic right now as others posts have confirmed. Demand is high to begin with. And imports, which usually serve to offset modest spikes in demand, have shrunk since the anti-dumping lawsuit that was recently filed.

Those of you who have been around a while have seen this before and know availability is a cyclic kind of animal. AISC is working with mills and service centers to solve this problem.

Our project managers are telling me there is a big problem with lead time
on steel delivery. Is anybody else experiencing this? Most of my projects
are in the northeast.
