WDMA Criticizes Decision to Reinstate Steel and Aluminum Tariffs on Argentina and Brazil

[Washington, D.C.] Today, the Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) strongly criticized the announcement by President Trump that his Administration will reinstate Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Argentina and Brazil, which had been previously excluded. The President cited currency devaluation by both countries as the reason for his decision.  
“WDMA is very disappointed with the President’s decision to reinstate tariffs on steel and aluminum from Argentina and Brazil,” said WDMA President and CEO Michael O’Brien. “This sudden action could result in price increases for window, door and skylight manufacturers and create further uncertainty in the residential and commercial construction markets. WDMA calls on the Trump Administration to abide by its 2018 agreements with both Argentina and Brazil to exclude imports from Section 232 tariffs.”
