Sediver USA is the global technical expert and manufacturer of overhead line insulation technology in the electricity distribution industry. Sediver assembles various parts to produce completed electrical insulator products used in the High Voltage industry.
Sediver USA imports four products from China to make its high voltage electrical insulator units. The cost of importing these products from China was being significantly impacted by the US 301 tariffs which had steadily increased from about 3% to 25%. Through the US Trade Representative’s Office (USTR), one could apply for an exclusion to the 301 tariffs but needed to meet certain criteria in order to be granted such an exclusion.
AEDC Manufacturing Solutions did an outstanding job helping the Sediver team file for our tariff exclusion. This was very important for our company to be able to grow our business, add new employees, and stay competitive in the market.
