Tariffs Roundtable Discussion

Hosted by the Paranet Group 

 

Please join us for a discussion around tariffs with Kurt Bauer, CEO, Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and Phil Heston, VP, Alter Trading, Both Kurt and Phil will give us their update and opinions on tariffs.
The Paranet Group has also confirmed three members who will share what they are doing and provide good ideas for strategy:
TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION AND QUESTIONS MAY INCLUDE:
  • What do you anticipate will be the outcome of negotiations with China?  Why? When? Do you believe this will be settled before the next election?
  • What strategies are you taking to control costs of raw materials? 
  • What is the effect of tariffs and possible tariffs having on your supply chain?
  • Are you pursuing other strategic moves?  Manufacturing in other locations?  Sourcing from alternate supplies?  Hedge buying?
  • How will Canada's Tariffs affect your business?
  • What items will be affected by Tariffs based on country of origin:  Mexico vs. Canada vs. China vs. EU
  • How are companies worldwide dodging the US tariffs by falsifying identification codes on products?
  • How are tariffs straining the links in the auto supply chain worldwide?

Discussion will be facilitated by Paranet's very own, Ed Panelli, Quality Group Director.
