Re: Section 301 Tariffs / Price Increase




As indicated in our announcement dated September 20, 2018, the Commerce Department’s 10% tariff on $200 Billion of Chinese imports is set to escalate to 25% on January 1, 2019.  As a result, we will be increasing our net and list prices by 15% for Chinese-sourced products in the following product categories. This price increase will be effective January 1, 2019 and we will not be able to extend price protection, grace periods or honor back orders at the old price.  New list price sheets will be available for download in the coming weeks.  Please continue to monitor our website for updates.  You can find our full list of price sheets by clicking here.
