As a reminder, the US-China tariffs on bare PCBs are increasing from 10% to 25% on January 1st, 2019, causing many US electronic manufacturers to place orders in advance, to avoid the price hike. The electronics industry is already experiencing a passive component shortage, and shutting down facilities in China will only further increase lead times. Despite these challenges, Pro-Active Engineering is here to support you and offer solutions.
