Metals Service Center Institute Supports Aluminum Industry’s Dumping Action Against China

Metals Service Center Institute Supports Aluminum Industry’s Dumping Action Against China

 

Rolling Meadows, Ill., March 9, 2017— M. Robert Weidner, III, president and CEO of the Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI), reacted today to the Aluminum Association’s antidumping and countervailing duty petition regarding imports of certain aluminum foil from China. Weidner said:

“The Metals Service Center Institute and its members applaud the Aluminum Association’s decision to pursue relief for domestic producers facing increasing volumes of low-priced imports of aluminum foil from China. This petition sets an important precedent for attaining the goal of fair and free trade for the entire industrial metals supply chain. As the Aluminum Association has argued, this case is a vital step in addressing Chinese overcapacity. In testimony last fall before the U.S. International Trade Commission, MSCI called for tougher government action to halt unfair and illegal trade practices by China, including currency manipulation, that have harmed the U.S. aluminum industry.”
