“Over the course of fiscal year 2021, the cost of our raw materials increased substantially, and its availability became very limited,” says Webco CEO and Chairman Dana S. Weber. “Where possible, we increased our sales prices in response to raw material cost increases.  In addition, non-steel supplies and operating costs, as well as freight services, have increased in cost and decreased in availability.

“The business environment of the current fiscal quarter compares favorably to the challenges we faced in our fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, during which the pandemic was affecting almost all lines of business and crude oil prices remained low.”
