U.S. Imposes Anti-Dumping Duties on Chinese Steel Grating

The Commerce Department’s International Trade Association issued a preliminary finding determining that Chinese companies are dumping steel grating into the U.S. market. Four companies will be charged with an anti-dumping duty of 14.36% while all other Chinese producers/exporters of steel grating will be charged 145.18%.

The U.S. imported $90.7M of steel grating in 2008. Alabama Metal Industries Corp (AL) and Fisher & Ludlow petitioned in this case.

Commerce reports the products covered under this preliminary finding as follows:

“…certain steel grating, consisting of two or more pieces of steel, including load-bearing pieces and cross pieces, joined by any assembly process, regardless of: (1) size or shape; (2) method of manufacture; (3) metallurgy (carbon, alloy, or stainless); (4) the profile of the bars; and (5) whether or not they are galvanized, painted, coated, clad or plated.”
