FootMaster wheels and casters -- like its GD Series leveling caster -- present high-quality alternatives to Chinese casters facing price increases due to U.S. tariffs.

FootMaster® is pleased to announce that its line of casters is not impacted by the recent Section 301 tariffs imposed on imported goods from China. FootMaster is manufactured in South Korea, so it will not be subject to import tariffs on any of its products. Tariffs of between 10-25% on over $250 Billion in goods are expected to impact many sectors of American manufacturing that rely on Chinese materials and manufacturing plants. Casters, caster wheels, and components manufactured in China are currently subject to tariff increases.

Chinese casters and components will be subject to list 3 tariffs of 10% to 25% and list 1 tariffs of tariffs recently introduced by the U.S. Trade Representative. List 3 tariffs will escalate to 25% effective January 2019. Many U.S. industries are seeking alternative domestic or non-Chinese imports for use in U.S manufacturing and assembly to avoid these expected cost increases. FootMaster wheels and casters -- like its GD Series leveling caster -- present high-quality alternatives to Chinese casters facing price increases due to U.S. tariffs.
