The U.S. Department of Commerce affirmed its preliminary determination to impose antidumping duties on imports of Chinese hardwood plywood, ranging from 57.36 to 114.72 percent.

“Today’s preliminary determination is an important step in stopping the unfair trade of Chinese hardwood plywood products,” said Tim Brightbill, counsel to the Coalition for the Fair Trade of Hardwood Plywood. “Commerce has made clear that Chinese dumping and subsidies will no longer be tolerated. We look forward to affirmative final determinations in these important investigations.”

The coalition is a group of six producers and manufacturers committed to safeguarding the U.S. hardwood plywood industry and its thousands of workers.
