SHANGHAI, Apr 17 (SMM) – About 100,000 mt of #300 stainless steel output will be affected as a stainless steel plant in north-west China undertakes maintenance and as a steelmaker in Fujian province cuts production, an SMM survey showed.
Driven by losses and the market downturn, the plant will undergo maintenance for 50 days from mid-May.
The steelmaker in Fujian cut production from late March and is expected to resume operation by late April.
Monthly output of #300 stainless steel across China stood below one million mt, SMM data showed.
