Cost Increase on Import Steel and Aluminum- What's Next?

Cost Increase on Import Steel and Aluminum- What's Next?

Posted by Cristen on 23rd Apr 2018

Important Notice

Noah's Park & Playgrounds will always strive to provide quality park and playground equipment at fair and reasonable prices. But sometimes, completely out of our control, the cost of imported steel and aluminum can create a little hiccup in our mission.

On March 8, 2018, after a nearly yearlong Section 232 investigation by the Department of Commerce, the Trump Administration announced broad sweeping tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Thus far, with the tariff announcement now in effect, three of Noah's product manufacturers— Superior RecreationMyTCoat,  National Recreation Systems and Dero- found it necessary to add a surcharge to all future quotes and orders. The surcharge rates are between 2% to 5%, depending on the company.

So far, these manufactures total only 4 of the 40 vendors Noah's partners with, to increase their costs due to this tariff increase. That means others could follow suit. Make sure to LIKE or FOLLOW us on Facebook and Twitter, or subscribe to our newsletter to stay-in-the-know about any updates on cost increases due to the tariff increases.
