COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) today determined that unfairly traded imports of DOT-39 non-refillable steel cylinders from China have materially injured Worthington Industries. These cylinders deliver gases that are critical for HVAC and refrigeration and service the construction industry.
“We thank the International Trade Commission for its hard work and careful attention to this investigation,” said Worthington Industries President and CEO Andy Rose. “The ITC’s affirmative finding is vital to restoring fair market conditions, ensuring the ongoing manufacture of this product by our employees in the United States and will result in more high-quality jobs and expanded production of this essential product.”
Today’s unanimous decision completes the ITC’s investigation into surging volumes of aggressively priced, non-refillable steel cylinder imports from China over the past several years. The ITC’s affirmative injury determination will result in the U.S. Department of Commerce publishing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on non-refillable cylinder imports from China, expected in early May, requiring importers of these cylinders to pay duties ranging from 82% - 288%.
Non-refillable steel cylinders are used to store, transport and deliver refrigerant gases, and other products such as foam insulation and spray adhesives. These cylinders are critical to the retail sector, HVAC and construction industries. The Company makes DOT-39 non-refillable steel cylinders at its facilities in Columbus, Ohio and Paducah, Ky. Worthington is represented by Kelley Drye & Warren LLP in this case.
