U.S. industry not injured by imports of wire decking from China:trade body

WASHINGTON, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Chinese wire decking product does not hurt U.S. industry, according to a final ruling by the U. S. trade authority on Thursday.

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) determined Thursday to deny a ruling by the Commerce Department on final antidumping duties (AD) and countervailing duties (CVD) on imports of some 235.9 million dollar wire decking from China.

As a result of the commission's negative determinations, no antidumping or countervailing duty order will be issued on imports of this product from China.

The USITC said in a statement that "a U.S. industry is neither materially injured nor threatened with material injury by reason of imports of wire decking from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value."

Four of the six-member commission voted in the negative. Two voted in the affirmative.

About a year ago, five U.S. companies filed petition to the U.S. trade authorities to seek protection. The USITC instituted the investigations on June 5, 2009.

The petitioners for these investigations are AWP Industries, Inc., ITC Manufacturing, Inc., J&L Wire Cloth, Inc., Nashville Wire Products Mfg. Co., Inc., and Wireway Husky Corporation.

The product covered by these investigations is welded-wire rack decking produced from carbon or alloy steel wire that has been welded into a mesh pattern.
