New Tariffs by Manufacturers

On May 10th the US Trade Representative's office increased tariffs from 10% to 25% on many goods imported from China. Many of our manufacturer partners rely on a variety of component parts and materials from all over the world to produce their products. Therefore, they have been forced to implement a tariff surcharge on their orders.

Here are the manufacturers who have implemented a tariff surcharge:

Effective June 1, 2019, the following adjustments will take place:

  • The current surcharge of 3% will increase to 7 ½ % on all products.
  • Previously quoted projects registered NLT May 31st may be registered for price protection using the 3% current surcharge, provided the order is placed by July 1st and can ship when ready.
  • As is currently the case, the surcharge will be added as a line item to the net price.
  • The printed Price Book will not reflect the 7 ½% surcharge, but the pdf on our website will be updated to include the 7 ½% surcharge on the front cover and stickers will be available to add to the printed version.
  • Updated surcharge information will be added to the website Chair Designer by June 1, 2019.

Note: When the 10% tariff was imposed back in September of 2018, Lesro absorbed the burden and did not implement a tariff surcharge.

While Safco has taken measures to absorb the impact of the tariff, it is not possible for them to absorb the entirety of the cost increases. As a result, effective June 3, 2019, Safco Products will institute an additional 7.3% list price increase on imported items affected by the tariff and a 2.3% increase on domestic and non-China imported products resulting from increases on imported materials, parts and components.  These pricing adjustments are in-line with previous Safco surcharge notifications regarding potential tariff increases.

SAFCO will evaluate pricing levels in the event the China tariffs are repealed.
