U.S. Sees Indication Moulding, Millwork Firms Being Hurt by Imports

Washington, DC—The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of wood mouldings and millwork products from Brazil and China.

The wood mouldings are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the government of China. Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Jason E. Kearns, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative. Commissioner Randolph J. Stayin did not participate in these investigations.

As a result of the determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of these products from Brazil and China, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about April 2, 2020, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about June 16, 2020.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced the initiation of the anti-dumping and countervailing duties investigations into wood moulding and millwork from Brazil and China on January 31, 2020.

The investigations were initiated based on petitions filed by the Coalition of American Millwork Producers, whose members are Bright Wood Corporation (Madras, OR), Cascade Wood Products, Inc. (White City, OR), Endura Products, Inc. (Colfax, NC), Sierra Pacific Industries (Red Bluff, CA), Sunset Moulding (Live Oak, CA), Woodgrain Millwork, Inc. (Fruitland, ID), and, picture above, Yuba River Moulding (Yuba City, CA).

The Commission’s public report Wood Mouldings and Millwork Products from Brazil and China (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-636 and 731-TA-1469-1470 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 5030, March 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations. The report will be available after March 23, 2020 on the USITC website.
