Haynes and Boone Successfully Represents Client in Antidumping Investigation

06/06/2014


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Siam Industrial Wire Co., Ltd. (SIW), represented by Haynes and Boone Washington, D.C. international trade lawyer Ed Lebow, is the sole victorious respondent in the recently-completed U.S. government antidumping investigation of Prestressed Concrete Steel Rail Tie Wire (PC tie wire) from China, Mexico and Thailand.

The U.S. Department of Commerce found that the Chinese and Mexican producers dumped PC tie wire in the U.S. market by margins of 31.4 and 9.99 percent respectively.

In addition, the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that the Chinese and Mexican imports have injured the U.S. domestic industry producing PC tie wire. By contrast, the government concluded that SIW did not sell its merchandise at less than normal value, and thus the company received a negative final determination.

As a result, imports from China and Mexico will be slapped with antidumping duties, while SIW will be permitted to continue its business unencumbered by penalty tariffs.
SIW is a subsidiary of Tata Steel Limited, a long-time client of Haynes and Boone.

“We are gratified by the results of this investigation which reflect extensive written submissions by SIW and a series of on-site verifications by the U.S. Department of Commerce in Thailand and at the Tata Steel International (Americas) Inc. sales office near Chicago,” Lebow said. “SIW prices its products fairly and has earned consistent profits on its exports to the United States. The final determination of ‘no dumping’ is appropriate and well-deserved.”
