Beating the Tariffs – TRI Sourcing SolutionsApril 22, 2020
While we do import a few items from China, Turkey and other countries that may be impacted by pending and active duties, we also represent reputable producers of the same products, from alternative countries. This gives TRI, and our customers, the ability to make the best possible sourcing decisions, based on given market conditions.
If you are currently sourcing a Chinese or Turkish product from TRI, or from any other source that these pending duties may impact, and you would like to discuss what alternatives are available, please contact us right away so that we can help you avoid any hurdles as deadlines quickly approach.
Please also remember that primary supply chains for our top products are not of Chinese origin, and will not be effected:
– Benzyl Alcohol (BOH)
– Propylene Glycol (PG USP/PGI)
– Caustic Soda Beads & Flakes
– Glycol Ethers
– Hydrocarbon Resin
– Epoxy Resins
– Fumaric Acid
– Maleic Anhydride
– …and many more
We will continue to do our best to keep you informed on the changes in our global marketplace and these pending tariff rulings, as well as protecting both of our interests. We look forward to your continued business and welcome your feedback or questions anytime. Please contact us anytime at +1(206) 505-3500 / 1-800-767-7711 or contact your local TRI Representative.
