Beginning on February 1, 2019, the prices of all items at DZ Sales LLC will increase by 20%. This change is as a direct result of President Trump signing a memorandum on March 22nd, 2018 under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, which created additional tariffs on Chinese goods and added an additional 25% tax on all goods imported from China.
In 2018, suppliers and sellers in the industry raised their prices in response to these tariffs. However, we at DZ Sales held off on raising our prices. We made this decision as part of our continuing effort to provide the best possible service to our customers.
Our mission has always been to offer quality tooling at affordable prices. Unfortunately, due to the additional cost burden these tariffs have created, we must now regrettably raise our prices. Despite the 25% increase in taxes, we are only raising our prices by 20%. This decision means we will absorb some of the cost in order to continue to focus on the interests of our customers while staying competitive and profitable.
We thank you for your continued support.
