WDMA Statement on Steel and Aluminum Tariff Agreement

Today, the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) released the following statement after the Biden administration reached an agreement with the United Kingdom to lift Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum imports imposed by the previous administration in 2018.

“WDMA welcomes the decision by the Biden administration to lift tariffs on critical steel and aluminum products from the United Kingdom,” said WDMA President & CEO Michael O’Brien. “As the construction and manufacturing industries continue to grapple with supply chain challenges and record-high price volatility, this action by the Administration is an important step to help stabilize supply and improve conditions for residential construction. Moving forward, WDMA encourages the Administration to also re-examine tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber and Chinese imports subject to Section 301 tariffs."
