Dan Pickard Discusses Latest CIT Ruling on Diamond Sawblades

Mr. Pickard, who represents the Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers’ Coalition, stated “This large Chinese producer has been found to be controlled by the government of China and will be assessed antidumping duties at the China-wide rate.”
“Commerce will determine if the most appropriate rate is 164 percent or 82 percent, but either way, significant antidumping duties will finally be paid by this company. This will have a substantial beneficial effect on U.S. pricing and U.S. shipments,” said Mr. Pickard.
