As you are probably aware, under Section 301 Action of US Trade Representative (USTR), the US government has imposed additional import tariffs on a list of products including LED light fixtures and associated components. As of today, Tuesday, September 25, 2018 a 10% tariff on these products been implemented with another expected increase taking the tariff from 10% to 25% on January 1, 2019.
Obviously, this is an “out of scope” cost that was not in our original estimates and sales orders. In an effort to offset some of those increases we have a 2%-7% increase in price. These increases will be effective Oct. 15th. Our customer service team can identify the price changes for you.
We really appreciate you and your business.
