Decision Imposes Final Duties on Billions of Dollars of Chinese Imports On March 24th, the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance (AKCA) released a statement on the recent decision to impose antidumping and countervailing duties on unfairly traded Chinese imports of wooden cabinets and vanities.
Wellborn Cabinet endorsed the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance back in March 2019 and has been a part of the discussions, which have taken place over several months.
“We want to thank all the parties involved for the effort given over the last three years in fighting for the American workers. Including the AKCA, Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA), and the KCMA president Betsy Natz. This unanimous vote from the International Trade Commission will help bring a level playing field to the domestic cabinet manufacturing industry.“ – Stephen Wellborn, Director of Product Research and Development for Wellborn Cabinet, Inc.
The ITC vote means that almost all manufacturers that import from China will face final combined antidumping and countervailing duties cash deposit rates of about 59%. The orders will remain in effect for a minimum of five years, and duty evasion, absorption and circumvention are strictly illegal.
