We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we learned today that the (United States International Trade Commission (USITC) voted affirmative that the wooden cabinets and vanities imported from China injured. The result of this case means that imports of these products from China will have to pay antidumping and countervailing duties of 48.5% and 20.93% respectively.
What this means for cabinet importers?
Let’s say the FOB price for a B18 white shaker cabinet is $100. Our President Donald Trump imposed a 25% tariff on goods imported from China.
Import Price = $100 + 25% Tariff + 48.5% Antidumping duty + 20.93% Countervailing duty
= $100 + $25 + $48.5 + $20.93
What this means for cabinet buyers?
Pretty simple, more expensive cabinets for which a low and average income homeowners might NOT willing to spend. Did we say that you still have to pay Sales Tax? That’s right!
The lockdown due to the coronavirus situation is like a dry run of what might possibly happen if other RTA cabinets shut down and no cabinets to sell for those who stayed open. That means in order for the installers and retailers to survive, they will have to rely on local cabinet giants who charged ridiculous prices for cabinets.
As a small company who’ve been struggling to survive ever since the tariff was imposed, we don’t know what the future has in store for us. We can only hope that USITC will change their mind before they realized the repercussions of this unfortunate decision.
Greencastle Cabinetry will continue to try our best to stay open and fight this nonsense to keep our people employed and support customers who depend on us.
Dear valued customers;
As you all know, President Donald Trump imposed another tariff increase from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200 billion list of Chinese goods on May 10th, which affected the products in our trade.
We thought long and hard if we should follow the trend of increasing all our prices, but doing so will stray us away from our core values – to provide affordable and quality products to our customers. Hence, we’ve decided to just increase the prices of the cabinets that are merely affected by the new tariffs when it comes to production and import costs. Therefore, we are happy to announce that ONLY Antique White and Coffee Glaze will have a 10% price increase starting July 1st, 2019.
The tariff increase is amidst the anti-dumping and countervailing duty petition filed by American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance (AKCA), which puts the RTA cabinet industry at risk. Greencastle Cabinetry has joined the American Coalition of Cabinet Distributors (ACCD) together with other importers, distributors, dealers, contractors, and installers to fight back the trade case filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and U.S. Department of Commerce.
Learn how you can join us in this battle by signing up on the ACCD website. You can also follow @VoiceofACCD on Twitter and share the tweets on your social media until our voices are heard by using the hashtag #KeepCabinetChoices.
Thank you for understanding and continuous support with Greencastle Cabinetry.
