SUPPLIER PRICING NEWS
As many of you are aware, the US Government recently passed a third round of tariffs, known as List 3 under USTR Section 301. The first two rounds of tariffs were passed on July 6, 2018 and August 23, 2018. This third round (List 3) was passed last Monday, September 24, 2018, which included an additional 10% tariff. As of today, this tariff is expected to increase to 25% effective January 1, 2019. We have been working very closely with our suppliers in order to provide you with the most up to date information as soon as possible. Most of the suppliers that we have spoken with thus far are working diligently to absorb as much of the tariffs as possible and are trying to wait until January 1, 2019 to pass on any increases.
However, as of today, we do know the following: Fellowes will be passing an increase on December 1, 2018, Acme is passing an increase sometime in October, Flexsteel/DMI is passing an increase on October 1, 2018, Victor is passing an increase on November 1, 2018, OFM passed an increase on September 25, 2018, and Boss is now passing an increase on October 22, 2018 due to the recent tariffs.
For more information regarding the tariffs, please visit our "Stay in the News!" section located on the TriMega homepage for the latest updates. We will also be providing you with the latest updates on January 1, 2019 pricing in the next few days so please be on the lookout!
