The government has temporarily stopped the tariffs on luxury vinyl flooring tiles purchased from China! This is great news for our suppliers, who were absorbing much of the price increases that the tariffs imposed. We had only seen small price increases in the market, but we’re still happily anticipating even better deals for you in the near future.
Although the Office of the U. S. Trade Representative didn’t specify the reason for the tariff exemption, flooring industry experts are saying that it is because they were able to demonstrate that there wasn’t enough luxury vinyl flooring produced outside of China wasn’t enough to meet the demand. After the ban, some flooring companies have moved their factories to other countries in Asia, including Vietnam and South Korea. Still, over 75% of LVF is produced inside China.
