From 09/2017 to 11/2017 Renzoe Box, LLC attempted to manufacture our product fully in the United States. After over 60 days of failed attempts due to lack of skills by US-based plastics manufacturers, we began contacting Chinese-based manufacturers at the unanimous recommendation of many other US-based companies who had undergone product sourcing and manufacturing before us.
As of September 24, 2018 we are subject to the Trump-China tariff:
Original rate: 3%
New rate: +10% (total +13%)
January 1, 2019 rate: +25% (total +28%)
We very much like our current manufacturers, but this new tariff will force us to raise the price of Renzoe Boxes for our customers, and we’d like to avoid that. Therefore, we’re conducting a manufacturer search. Please see Request For Qualifications below.
Please Note: Renzoe Pods are filled with makeup formulas in a cosmetic laboratory in the United States.
