2018 Tariff Implementation, Manhattan, New York

Dear Valued Customer,

As you may be aware, The United States Office of the Trade Representative has finalized a new tariff on $200 billion worth of imported Chinese goods, which includes the categories of casters and caster components. The tariff will affect products arriving into the U.S. by 10% on September 24th 2018, and increase to 25% on January 1, 2019.  For the official press release from the U.S. government, click the link below:

Thus, effective October 8th, 2018 CWIH Inc. will be required to implement a 5-10% price increase depending on the product. CWIH will honor all old pricing on orders placed by or before end of business day, Friday October 5th 2018. The CWIH Sales team is working hard to alleviate the impact of these additional tariffs, and will continue to provide quality service to our valued customers. If and when the tariffs are lifted, CWIH will respond by adjusting prices accordingly. 

We truly value and thank you for your business, and look forward to servicing all your mobility needs. Please let us know if we can provide any additional support or help answering any questions you may have. 

 

Sincerely,

CWIH Inc.
