Antidumping review extended for Chinese innerspring maker

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Commerce on Monday announced that it is extending issuing the final results of a new shipper review in the uncovered innerspring units case.

The new shipper review covers shipments made by Foshan Nanhai Jiujiang Quan Li Spring Hardware Factory of China from Feb. 1 to July 31, 2010. Such reviews are made for factories that haven't previously shipped to the U.S.

On Aug. 4, the DOC announced that Quan Li's preliminary new shipper review results were not qualified to receive a new shipper review. It based that on questions involving its relationship with exporter Foshan Yongnuo Import & Export Co., Ltd.

The final review results were expected to be completed by Oct. 24, but the DOC agreed to extend the deadline by another two months. The final results are now expected in late December.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
