Earlier this month Jangho indicated it will no longer participate in the current antidumping Administrative Review. Because Jangho will not participate, the Department of Commerce (DOC) will apply the adverse facts available (AFA) margin of 33% to Jangho. This leaves Kromet as the only participating Chinese company in the review. However, Kromet is a voluntary respondent. The DOCâ€™s normal practice is to not apply the voluntary respondent margin to any other Chinese respondent. If Commerce holds to this practice, the margin calculated to Kromet will only apply to Kromet, and all other Chinese aluminum extrusions will be subject to the AFA margin of 33%.
Another Victory for the U.S.
Aluminum Extrusion Industry!
Keep in mind that the Jangho withdrawal only impacts the antidumping portion of the second administrative review. We are still working hard on the countervailing portion of this yearâ€™s review.
Your continued support is the key to our success. That is why this monthâ€™s blog entry is about the impacts of the Fair Trade Initiative to the U.S. aluminum extrusion marketâ€™s recovery since 2009.
