The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has found that carbon and alloy steel wire rod imports from five countries were hurting U.S. producers, upholding a U.S. Commerce Department finding made in March.
The U.S. Department of Commerce had determined that exporters from Italy, Korea, Spain, Turkey, and the U.K. had dumped carbon and alloy steel wire rod in the U.S. at 12.41-18.89%, 41.10%, 11.08-32.64%, 4.74-7.94%, and 147.63% less than fair value, respectively. The April issue of WJI listed rates for individual companies.
The petitioners in the case were Gerdau Ameristeel US, Inc., Nucor Corporation, Keystone Consolidated Industries and Charter Steel. With the affirmative finding by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), the Commerce Department will issue AD and CVD orders.
