Frank Sonzala hopes to end up on the winning side of the global trade war.

The chief executive of a South Gate-based truck chassis manufacturer, he’s transferring about a third of his company’s production from China to the United States, a move he says will create about 275 local jobs.

He’s also dropped the old moniker, CIMC Intermodal Equipment, rebranding the company as CIE Manufacturing.

“I always felt that we should be manufacturing in the United States,” Sonzala said. “We just sped it up because of the situation. … With the 25% tariff, our customers would buy four (chassis) and pay for five. And it’s pretty hard to get by a board of directors or financial officer that you got a 25% loss on your equipment because of the tariff.”

Before the recent changes, CIE was only inspecting and assembling steel chassis from components produced by its China-based parent, CIMC Vehicles Group Co. Ltd., at its South Gate and Emporia, Va. plants. The chassis were sold through 67 dealers in North America.

The company delivered 45,441 chassis in 2018, its record year. But, in 2019 as cargo volumes at local ports dipped, CIE’s orders dropped 44% to 25,369 chassis.

“A lot of people in the industry were depending on container boxes to come over filled with Chinese goods, like Christmas trees and everything else, that weren’t being purchased at 25% tariff,” he said.
