Case Study

The Vogel Group worked with one of the country’s largest portable fan manufacturers to secure tariff exclusions from the United States Trade Representative’s Section 301 trade action.

IMPACT

Our team facilitated direct engagement with the White House, the U.S. Department of Commerce, members of Congress, and related trade associations to generate letters of support for tariff relief. In addition, the Vogel Group hosted key members of Congress at the client’s manufacturing facility to demonstrate the impact of the tariffs on production line efficiency and access to raw materials. Through these efforts, the company generated tens of millions of dollars in savings, reduced the cost burden for its overall operations, and helped fuel expansion and job creation across its U.S. manufacturing assets.
