Copper Management

Copper Fluctuations
Since 2006, copper has been an extremely volatile commodity. What does this mean for you? This volatility means that production costs for battery cables and other items with copper components are sensitive to fluctuations in the copper market.

Helping You Control Costs
In order to help you control costs, American Cable will work with you to find a pricing program that fits your specific requirements. Based on the program, we will set an agreed upon base price, with adjustments as required on a periodic basis.

For shorter projects, we may utilize an average price. For longer production periods, we may set a base price for a year, with occasional adjustments to be negotiated and agreed upon with you.

Indexes for Copper Pricing
For pricing purposes, American Cable tracks the following indexes:

  • COMEX Copper Index
  • London Metal Exchange
  • Omega-Camden Index
