WDMA Statement on the President’s Sudden Tariff Increase Announcement

Posted By Window & Door Manufacturers Association, Monday, May 6, 2019

[WASHINGTON]– The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) issued the following statement regarding the announcement that the current tariff on certain Chinese products could increase from 10% to 25%:

“WDMA has serious concerns regarding the President’s announcement that the 10% tariff on certain Chinese products could increase this week to 25% and urges him to reconsider,” said WDMA President & CEO Michael O’Brien. “As we have stated before, window, door and skylight manufacturers utilize certain products from China in the manufacturing process, including many that are currently subject to the 10% tariff. Increasing this amount to 25%, with such little notice, will significantly affect America’s manufacturers, along with the residential and commercial construction sectors. WDMA urges the Trump Administration to continue discussions with the Chinese government on a long-term deal, without this tariff increase, to cultivate a strong and lasting trading relationship between each country.”
