Please be advised that due to the current political climate and actions with regard to trade, duties of 25% may be levied upon the products that Phase II currently produces. If this does eventually occur on July 6th as the current govt has proposed, Phase II will be forced to make instant pricing adjustments on most of the product we currently sell, to completely cover the full amount of the duties levied.

We deeply regret any inconvenience this may cause our customers, but unfortunately we have no other course of action to take.

It is our recommendation that you contact your local representative and senator, letting them know how this tariff affects you, your customers and your business.
