Kitchen racks from China hurt U.S. makers
The U.S. International Trade Commission determined Monday that domestic makers of certain kitchen appliance shelving and ranks were injured by imports from China.
The Commerce Department had previously determined that the Chinese imports are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.
As a result of the ITC's affirmative determinations, the Commerce Department will issue countervailing and antidumping duty orders on imports of kitchen appliance shelving and racks from China.
The countervailing and antidumping investigation petition was filed by Nashville Wire Products, Nashville, Tenn,; SSW Holding Co., Elizabethtown, Ky.; the U.S. Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union; and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, District Lodge 8, Clinton, Iowa.
The ITC said there are six U.S. companies involved in the manufacturer of kitchen shelving and racks, which have plants in Fort Smith, Ark; Ludington, Mich.; Clinton, Iowa; and Newport, Madison and Nashville, Tenn.
