Tariffs Impacting Apogee – We Need Your Help.
If you haven’t, here is a brief timeline of events:
March 22, 2018: President Trump released a list of $50 billion dollars worth of imports from China and announced new tariffs that would be implemented, having a dramatic impact on imports and exports between the U.S. and China.
July 6, 2018: A 25% tariff on $34 Billion of Chinese goods began with another $16 billion dollar tariff to be implemented at a later date.
July 10, 2018: The United States Trade Representative gave a list of $200 billion dollars of Chinese imports that will potentially face an additional 10% tariff.
August 1, 2018: President Trump proposed to have the 10% tariff on a list of $200 billion dollars of Chinese imports increased to 25%.

Draft of Letter to Your Senator or Representative
Dear Senator or Representative,
Since July 6th, a tariff of 25% was placed on a significant number of the components and materials used by Apogee. These increases may make it necessary for Apogee to look outside the US for a manufacturing site. In addition these tariffs may have an economic impact on staff as well as eliminate the ability to keep charitable commitments.
