U.S. Cabinet Industry Wins At The ITC

In response to China's unfair trade practices, the U.S. International Trade Commission, in a unanimous vote on March 24, issued antidumping and countervailing duties on wooden kitchen cabinets and vanities. Almost all Chinese manufacturers will have to pay combined AD/CVD of about 59%. The 301 duties of 35% will also apply. The order will remain in effect for a minimum of five years. Evasion, absorption, or circumvention of these duties is strictly illegal.
