|=Down by 0.7% from prior month, and NSSC, Hikari Works and NYK, Kinuura Works curtail production= |
The crude stainless steel production by 7 major stainless steel mills in August 2013 was 307,638 tons, down by 0.7% from 309,733 tons of the prior month. This represented an increase of 6.7% versus the year-earlier month (288,307 tons). |
While Yawata Works of Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (NSSMC) and Chiba Works of JFE Steel Corporation recovered production, Hikari Works of Nippon Steel & Sumikin Stainless Steel Corporation (NSSC) and Kinuura Works of Nippon Yakin Kogyo Co., Ltd. (NYK) had production curtailment, and therefore the production volume of entire stainless steel decreased a little bit.
