Local steel pipe producers looking for more penalties against Chinese

Published: Thu, January 7, 2010 @ 4:05 p.m.

WARREN — The best is yet to come, say two local pipe producers who are fighting Chinese imports.

V&M Star and Wheatland Tube officials said today that they are counting on the federal government enacting a second set of penalties on Chinese pipe producers.

This next round would be more significant than the first.

The U.S. International Trade Commission last week approved duties of about 13 percent on Chinese imports of oil country tubular goods, which is pipe used for oil and natural gas exploration.

That case upheld claims by U.S. producers than China was providing unfair subsidies to its producers.

The next case is even bigger.

It alleges that China dumped pipe, which means selling it for less than the cost of production. A final ruling is expected in April, but a preliminary ruling has called for duties of 96 percent on most Chinese producers, said Roger Lindgren, V&M president.

If these are union shops then Chinese pipe will always be cheaper than V&N & Wheatland produce.

Union shops have nothing to do with it; the Chinese rely on near slave labor. You can't be them on labor costs, even in a "right to work" state.
