Re: Section 301 Tariffs / Price Increase

 

 

 

We again find ourselves in a difficult situation with the Commerce Department's 10% tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods ranging from parachutes to pet food, valves to fittings, nipples and faucets to plumbing specialties. These tariffs have an immediate implementation date at 12:01am on Monday the 24th of September and will increase to 25% on January 1, 2019, on many of the Matco-Norca products as listed in the categories below.

As a result, we will be forced to raise the net and list prices on the products listed above by 10% effective September 24, 2018 and we will not be able to extend price protection, grace periods or honor back orders at the old price. A complete and exact list of the products impacted and the associated new list price sheets will be forthcoming in the next 48 hours.

We sincerely thank you for your understanding of this situation and support of Matco-Norca.
