U.S. Commerce Looks At Moldings, Millwork

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced the initiation of new investigations to determine whether wood moldings and millwork products from Brazil and China are being dumped in the United States, and to determine if producers in China are receiving unfair subsidies.

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

Commerce will determine whether imports of wood moldings and millwork products from Brazil and China are being dumped in the U.S. market at less than fair value. Commerce will also determine whether Chinese producers of wood moldings and millwork products are receiving unfair government subsidies. Commerce is initiating an investigation into 37 alleged Chinese subsidy programs.
