Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations of High Pressure Steel Cylinders from China, Int'l Trade Comm'n Inv. Nos. 701-TA-480 and 731-TA-1188; Dep't of Commerce Case Nos. A-570-977 and C-570-978

Helped obtain a unanimous final affirmative antidumping and countervailing duty determination from the ITC on behalf of Texas company Norris Cylinder Company, a subsidiary of diversified manufacturer TriMas Corporation. The ITC found that Norris was injured by cylinders subsidized by the government of China and dumped into the U.S. market by producers in China.

As a result of the ruling, an antidumping duty of 6.62 percent and a countervailing duty of 15.81 percent have been ordered on the Chinese imports. These duties are designed to create a fairer competitive environment in the U.S. and enable Norris Cylinder to continue to provide its customers with high quality, high pressure steel cylinders.
