Thank you for the trust you have placed in our products and services. We are proud to have you as a partner in the distribution of high quality products and components for the building industry.
The government recently announced certain raw materials purchased from Canada, Mexico and the EU will no longer be exempt from section 232 tariffs.
This results in an immediate 25% tariff applied on the materials used in making fasteners, plates and termination bar here in the United States.
Due to the tariff an immediate increase on DEKFAST Plates of 9% and an increase of 5% on Aluminum Termination Bar. This increase is applied to any orders received 06/20/18 or later.
A increase of 5% on DEKFAST commercial flat roofing fasteners and our line of full stainless steel and Bi-Metal fasteners will go into effect on 07/06/18.
It is our initiative to keep you as competitive as possible in your own market, throughout this period of raw material cost inflation. We will continue to diligently work with our suppliers to keep our material and freight costs under control even under the existing phenomenal world building material climate.
Thank you for your support,
Andrew Mullen, President
Direct Metals Inc.
