Keywords: Tags  trade, imports, tie wire, steel, Mexico, China, Thailand, U.S. International Trade Commission U.S. International Trade Administration

NEW YORK — The Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration (ITA) has initiated an anti-dumping duty investigation into imports of prestressed concrete steel rail tie wire from China, Mexico and Thailand.

The ITA has issued dumping margins of 67.43 percent for Chinese producers; 159.44 percent for Mexican producers; and 53.72 percent for Thai producers. Petitioners Insteel Industries Inc. and Davis Wire Corp. filed a trade case last month, arguing that low-priced imports are hurting the domestic market (, April 24).

The U.S. International Trade Commission is scheduled to make its preliminary injury determination by June 7.
