“Should the proposed 301 tariffs be implemented, the additional duty would be directly passed onto the consumer as there is no time to plan and execute alternate solutions. There would be no future investments in the next five plus years as Yakima would be seeking to survive the financial devastation of the tariffs. Additionally, we expect the tariffs to have a chilling effect upon our sales revenue and profit margins, which would require us to adjust our workforce accordingly. In summary, the proposed additional duties will negatively impact our sales, reduce corporate spending and investment in projects, and ultimately affect the number of employees we have, without any corresponding adverse consequence to China’s industrial base.”
