Tariffs on Electronic Components Imported from China

Posted by Stephanie Weaver on Mon, Jul 09, 2018 @ 02:54 PM

Effective July 6, 2018 and as mandated by U.S. Trade Representative 301, certain electronic components imported from China will be subject to a 25% tariff.

We encourage you to review the listing of components that will be subject to the tariff as identified in the link above to determine the potential impact to your Bill of Materials and associated costs.

Zentech is working closely with our electronic component supply chain, our electronic component distributors, and with industry associations to best understand the mechanics of this tariff implementation.

You may also read a copy of notifications we have received to-date from our distributors here.

As noted in the attachments link from our suppliers, the tariff will likely be passed through 100% from our electronic component distributors to Zentech and will consequently be passed through 100% by Zentech.

This is an unprecedented development with some measure of fluidity and the unknown.

Zentech will strive to communicate additional details as they become available from our electronics supply chain and distributors.

Thank you for your patience as this process unfolds.

Please contact John Vaughan, VP of Sales at if you would like to discuss in greater detail.
