The money we save through GSP allows us to invest in the growth of our business via new employees, technology, and advertising.Damian Jones, Owner
GSP expiration had numerous negative impacts on Aid Through Trade: higher prices led to lower sales, which led to less money for purchasing new inventory, further reducing sales. Ultimately, it froze hiring and delayed capital investments.
With GSP renewed and tariffs refunded, Aid Through Trade hired a new employee and gave thousands of dollars in bonuses to its staff. It also invested in new technology and sales have also returned to their pre-expiration levels.
