Auto glass tariffs on China imports trickling down to consumers
“PGW Auto Glass notified its branch customers about its 10 percent increase to its products as a result of the tariff. The company’s increase became effective Oct. 1.
‘Due to these actions by the United States Trade Representatives (USTR), and like many U.S. industries today, PGW Auto Glass is forced to pass through this additional cost,’ read an excerpt from the company letter to its branch customers.”

This 10 percent tariff could increase to 25 percent in 2019 if the trade war between the U.S. and China doesn’t subside. It can be difficult for businesses that depend on foreign goods to absorb these types of costs. While no company wants to pass any increases such as these to their customers, sometimes there is no other choice.
