Chinese Auto Glass Manufacturer Makes Strides in Dumping Appeal

Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co. says that it is making strides in its case against the dumping ruling made by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) two years ago. Upon Fuyao’s appeal to the U.S. Court of International Trade in New York, the court has ruled that the DOC should withdraw its dumping charges against Fuyao.

“We believe the truth is on our side, so we spent a lot of time and money to prove it,’’ said Cao Dewang, president of Fuyao.

The DOC had not made a decision, however, at press time.

Officials from Greenville Glass, an American subsidiary of Fuyao, said they expect the final decision by the DOC to be several months away.

“It must be noted that the dumping case is still in the appeal process and that no final determinations have been made by the Department of Commerce,” said Bruce Prescher, vice president of sales. “We should have a better understanding of the appeal in about half a year to nine months.”

He added, “In the meantime it is business as usual for Greenville Glass. We are still under dumping penalties and we are still in the appeal process. Hopefully soon we will reach a positive conclusion to this long and arduous lawsuit.”
