Aside from where you stand on the political spectrum of tariffs, the facts are that these tariffs, and their retaliatory responses have had an adverse effect across many industries,impacting goods from washing machines and automobiles to soup cans. And no less so, in the electrical and building industries impacting the prices of rebar, electrical and plumbing conduit, boxes, fittings and countless other construction products.

Since the beginning of these “tariff wars”, the electrical industry has been reeling from the ceaseless onslaught of manufacturer price increase notifications. We will continue to post these price increase notifications here as we receive them.
