ITC: Korean imports jolt U.S. transformer makers
The U.S. International Trade Commission on Friday determined there is a 'reasonable indication' that domestic manufacturers of large power transformers are injured by South Korean imports which are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value.
As a result of the commission’s affirmative determination, the Commerce Department will continue to conduct its antidumping investigation on imports of these products from South Korea, with its preliminary antidumping duty determination due by Dec. 21.
The merchandise subject to the investigation is classified under the U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule subheadings 8504.23.00 and 8504.90.95.
The antidumping investigation was requested by ABB Inc. in Cary, N.C.; Delta Star of Lynchburg, Va.; and Pennsylvania Transformer Technology Inc., Canonsburg, Pa. The ITC started its investigation on July 14.
