G-20 Summit Trade Negotiations May Be Key to Tariff Increase Response

Dayton Superior has been working diligently to finalize plans on how to best address the May 10, 2019 tariff increase and we continue to monitor the situation closely.

President Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping are expected to continue trade discussions at the G-20 Summit to be held in Japan at the end of June. The result of any talks between the two leaders is likely to be a key determining factor in how Dayton Superior addresses any future impact the tariffs have on our business and that of our customers.

We will continue to post here and if warranted, reach out to customers via email as new information develops on the trade talks and their resulting impact on the tariffs.
