ACA has sent a letter to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal expressing our concern around the increase of tariff to gypsum being imported from the USA.
Our concerns are as follows:
- The cost increases may hurt our suppliers and our industry in general if they are varying dramatically across our industry.
- If we have a shortage, this will create basic supply problems for the industry and schedule and cost overruns for current projects.
- The cost increases would have to be passed on to the customer in succeeding contracts which may significantly impact government funded infrastructure projects.
ACA also explained that we hope that these changes will be kept from causing undo pain for our industry in a time where we are struggling to keep our businesses and employees in their jobs.
