ITC preliminary investigation finds U.S.
cabinetmakers harmed by Chinese
In a 4-0 vote, the U.S. International Trade Commission
has determined that “there is a reasonable indication” that
American cabinetry manufacturers are being harmed by
Chinese imports of wooden cabinets and vanities.
Announced April 19, the preliminary determination
by the USITC paves the way for the U.S. Department of
Commerce to continue its antidumping and countervailing
investigations into whether Chinese wooden cabinets, vanities and components are unfairly subsidized and sold in the
U.S. market at less than fair value. The DOC will make its
preliminary countervailing duty determination on or about
May 30, and its preliminary antidumping duty determination
on or about Aug.13. (Investigation Nos. 701-TA-620 and 731-
TA-1445 - Preliminary)
The investigations stem from a March 6 petition by the
American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance which claimed China’s
“manipulation and unfair trade practices” have led to a more
than 75 percent rise in Chinese imports of kitchen and bath
cabinetry in the last few years. In 2018, imports of wooden
cabinets and vanities from China were valued at almost half
of the estimated American market.– K.K.
