Michigan Lighting Manufacturer Lumecon will host the IES Detroit section to discuss how the current economic climate has impacted the lighting manufacturing process. The presentation will cover the history of the current US tariff program on goods imported from China, the types of goods that are affected, and the economic impacts on both countries and beyond. Special focus will be given to how the tariffs have impacted the lighting manufacturing industry, and what the implications might be for the future.
