Ex-Cell Kaiser Owner Featured in Crain's Chicago Business
Since Trump’s tariffs took effect in July of 2018, prices have been on the rise for steel and stainless steel. Not only have these tariffs increased the cost to manufacture our receptacles, but it has left uncertainty in our manufacturing process as many suppliers are increasing their minimum purchases AND lead times. At Ex-Cell Kaiser, all of our receptacles are made from a high-gauge steel (both stainless and cold-rolled).
Crain’s Chicago Business published an article that goes in-depth about how these tariffs are adding costs to manufacturers in Chicago, including a quote from our President and CEO, Janet Kaiser.
