Our company imports a man made gas that is used by the utility industry. No one in the US makes this gas and the duty on the import from Russia causes the utility industry to have to raise prices to the end consumer.
People are being laid off at my US customers production facilities due to the increased cost of the raw materials they need to import to build their products.

GSP expiration has cost us an average of $1500 per container and we are importing more than 1000 containers a year. It is causing cost increases on our products that we cannot pass on to our customers. We are now burdened with significant and unexpected costs. We cannot continue to absorb the increased tariff cost if the GSP is not renewed. We will ultimately go out of business and have to close our doors.

We have lost more than $60,000 this year due GSP. We import Granite stones that are not available in US. These beautiful color stones are available only overseas. American people need the choice of these beautiful stones. We have 22 jobs in line and relying on this business. So we need GSP to renewed right away to survive this year.
