TR International (TRI) is a chemical distributor based in Seattle, Washington. It employs 20 workers at its Seattle headquarters and 10 more at locations throughout the United States. It supplies imported and domestic chemicals to American manufacturers of paints, coatings, industrial cleaners, personal care products, hand sanitizers, and disinfecting wipes.
For many years, TRI’s GSP savings funded multiple full-time salaries. Despite loss of GSP for products imported from India and Turkey, GSP “still saves our company the equivalent of more than a full-time employee’s annual salary.”
Watch TRI Executive Vice President and CFO Jeff Wright explain how “maintaining full employment, full wages, and employee benefits is our top priority as is supporting our US customers who are trying to do the same for their American workers” – and how GSP renewal would help them do it.
