As I’m sure you all know, the tariffs for office furniture being imported from China and into the U.S. has increased to 25%. This increase is not only affecting the businesses within the industry, but also the consumers.
The businesses will incur more overhead costs from the tariff and begin to see their profit margins shirk. To combat that, at least a portion of those costs will be passed down directly to the consumer.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to connect the dots–there will be an increase in the sales price of a majority of Chinese manufactured office furniture.
What had once been the draw of these imports (it’s low cost) is beginning to diminish. As prices between Chinese made and U.S. made products become more equal, consumers can begin to focus even more attention to the quality and durability of the office furniture products they purchase.
Additional 5% Discount to RightAngle Dealers & Distributors
Bill Knighton, the President of RightAngle Products, has chosen to respond to the tariff increase by offering a 5% discount to dealers and distributors on selected U.S. made and TAA compliant products.
We are asking that our dealers taking advantage of this promotion pass the additional savings onto the consumers. We believe that more consumers should be able to experience what it’s like to use RightAngle’s high quality products.
“As a manufacturer, we do import a few of our products from overseas, so we relate and sympathize with the consumers that will now be charged higher prices.
Because of that, we are offering our dealers an additional 5% discount. Our team wants to give more individuals the opportunity to purchase our durable, high quality, U.S. made and better manufactured office furniture at a more affordable price point.”– Bill Knighton, President of RightAngle, d.b.a K&A Manufacturing
