International distribution and services in high-performance materials

Industry News Up-date March 26th, 2020

Due to the current situation of the corona pandemic, there are ongoing restrictions on the production and transport of our materials.

Currently, this mainly affects Italian and French producers. However, transport routes are congested throughout Europe, so that delays must be prepared for if deliveries are not made from national warehouses. In the meantime, the Asian plants are back on the market. However, bottlenecks with containers must be prepared for here.

Our warehouses are well filled. Stay in contact with our salesteam who will be happy to give you further information. 

The nickel price has been corrected downwards by a good 10% in the current month, compared with the beginning of the year and a quotation of around USD 11,000, the nickel price is 20% lower than at the beginning of the year.

Molybdenum has also weakened in recent weeks, but is now back at the level of the beginning of the year.

Scrap prices have also fallen sharply (ex. 1.4301 from CHF/kg 0.84 in January to CHF/kg 0.75 actual) and will probably remain under pressure in all metals due to the closures in Italy and the associated sales difficulties.

After Hempel Special Metals has received the ISO13485:2016 approval for the medical industry in 2015, we have now also been able to obtain the EN9100:2018 certification.
