Importing goods from China
Anyone have recent experience importing goods from China? We are looking to import acrylic from a Chinese manufacturer and wanted to understand some of the tarriffs/taxes/fees that we could incur so we can determine true costing.

Unfortunately there are no american manufactures of Acrylic, so everything comes from China. The phone that you just gave me the middle finger from....made in China.

Sounds like this would be a great opportunity for your business to expand and get into the acrylic making business then.

Contact a company like this and they can get you estimates. They can also help you with transportation if you need it.

I know nothing about the particular Acrylic products you are looking for, but none of these places has what you need?

Most of the supplies of acrylic in US are getting the product from China. There are some suppliers of acrylic in the US, but not for what we need it for. Acrylic has lots of different variations of it.

re: Importing goods from China

Chinese companies are infamous for not sticking to specifications.

My friend worked on a law suit after China had captured all of the manufacture of bowling machines. The didn't follow the specifications and the things broke down more than they were worth.

Funny thing is that bowling is extremely popular in China and they have some massive bowling alleys. However, as my friend noted, they had a lot of mechanics tending the machines. That might work out okay with Chinese labor, but it was a disaster here.

I'm curious what you mean by "acrylic"?
acylic monomers? acrylic acid? acrylic esters? polymers? resins? paints?

FTR - I work in acrylic-based chemicals with operations globally (China, US, Europe, etc.). Would be happy to discuss any questions you have.
