On April 17, 2018, Cambria Company LLC submitted a petition in favor of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties against Certain Quartz Surface Products from the People’s Republic of China pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 sections 701, 702(b), 731, and 732(b). The allegations of “dumping by subject producers” were filed simultaneously with both the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S International Trade Commission. The petition states that “U.S. imports of quartz surface products from China nearly tripled from 2015 to 2017” and that this was at least in part due to “significant price underselling” of the imported quartz products by Chinese companies; resulting in “suppressed prices” in the U.S. market, and causing “material injury to the domestic industry making quartz surface products”.
Cambria alleges in its petition that the imports from China are subsidized, and that the “unfairly-traded quartz surface products” will continue to depress prices in the U.S. if relief is not provided. The alleged subsidies that are provided to Chinese producers of quartz surface products include tax breaks, loans, government grants, and the provision of resources at below market prices.
