Garmco, one of the largest downstream Aluminum facilities in the Middle East, which is Bahrain-based Gulf Aluminum Rolling Mill Company, said its US subsidiary has waived import tariffs for it to facilitate smooth imports from the kingdom.
Bahrain manufacturing plant provides a wide range of premium aluminum flat-rolled products, for Garmco USA.
Garmco’s general manager Mohamed Essa said: "As in the years prior, we remain firmly dedicated towards our primary mission of delivering exceptional quality standards at all times."
The administration of US President Donald Trump has imposed customs duties on aluminum exports by 10% percent since March, with Canada and Mexico excluded from the decision.
Therefore Bahrain was in a continuous negotiation to be granted an exemption from the said tariffs, taking advantage of the free trade agreement signed between the two countries in 2006.
