ITC rules pipe imports not hurting US industry

Keywords: Tags  circular-welded pipe, anti-dumping, countervailing, ITC, JMC Steel, Allied Tube, U.S. Steel


NEW YORK — Imports of circular-welded carbon-quality steel pipe from India, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam are not hurting the domestic industry, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) determined in a 4-to-2 vote Wednesday in the final phase of an anti-dumping and countervailing duty case filed in October 2011.

Domestic producers had alleged that unfairly traded imports forced them to shutter facilities and shed jobs, but foreign producers argued that the U.S. market showed signs of improvement from 2009 to 2011 as demand improved ( amm.com, Oct. 17).

The petitioners in the case included Chicago-based JMC Steel Group—parent of Plymouth, Mich.-based Atlas Tube Inc. and Sharon, Pa.-based Wheatland Tube Co.—as well as Allied Tube & Conduit Corp., Harvey, Ill., and U.S. Steel Corp., Pittsburgh.
