Ford CEO says metal tariffs cost company $1 bln


Sept 26 – Ford Motor Co Chief Executive Officer James Hackett said on Wednesday that metal tariffs cost the carmaker $1 billion.

Hackett, speaking at the Bloomberg business forum conference in New York City, said the tariffs were very negative to the company since most of the supply came from American suppliers.

The United States in March said it would impose a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum. (Reporting by Sanjana Shivdas in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D’Silva)
