With all the news lately about trade tariffs, especially with China, what should you be concerned about? Well, if you purchase any goods manufactured in China or that have major components manufactured in China, expect to see a up to a 25% increase in your cost on those goods sometime between now and mid-September. Many manufacturers have already started sending out notices for their increases.
Many electric motors are manufactured in China and distributed by companies here in the United States including ABB, Regal Beloit and Toshiba. With the 25% increase in cost you might need to shop around and see if there is another option out there for you. If you want to explore your options on this, please give us a call or visit our website at www.remindustrial.com and let us know what you are concerned about. Chances are we can help you avoid the increased cost by switching to another brand that isn’t affected by the new tariffs or by repairing your existing motor.
