U.S. Slaps Duties on China Wire Decking

Jan. 6, 2010
Tariffs of between 42.61% to 289% will be imposed.

After a preliminary finding that the products were "dumped" at below market value, US authorities slapped tariffs on Chinese wire decking after a preliminary finding that the products were "dumped" at below market value, officials said on Jan. 5.

In the latest trade row with China, the Department of Commerce announced a preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation on imports of steel wire decking, designed mainly for industrial and other commercial storage rack systems.

The tariffs of between 42.61% to 289% will be imposed and collected until a final determination is made in the case.

The case results from a complaint from manufacturers AWP Industries of Kentucky, ITC Manufacturing of Arizona, J&L Wire Cloth of Minnesota, Nashville Wire Products of Tennessee and Wireway Husky Corp. of North Carolina.

The United States has imposed duties on a variety of Chinese goods including steel pipes, grating and tubular goods based on other investigations.
