Cylinder Antidumping Decision Made - 5/30/2012
The U.S. International Trade Commission has made a unanimous final determination that TriMas’ Norris Cylinder business has been materially injured by imports of high pressure steel cylinders that are being subsidized by the Government of China as well as being dumped into the U.S. market by producers in China.
The result of this decision is an imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on the subject imports. These duties are expected to create a fairer competitive environment and support investment in the production of high pressure steel cylinders in the United States and the U.S. jobs created by that production. According to TriMas, Norris Cylinder is the last remaining producer of high pressure steel cylinders in the United States.
