U.S. Producers of Certain Polyester Staple Fiber File Antidumping Case Against China

On June 23, 2006, three U.S. producers of certain polyester staple fiber filed an antidumping duty petition allegeing that imports of certain polyester staple fiber from the People's Republic of China are injuring the domestic industry. The petition, filed by Dak Americas LLC, Nan Ya Plastics Corporation America and Wellman, Inc., covers polyester staple fibers with a diameter of three denier and greater, which is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, bedding and furniture. The petition alleges antidumping margins of 88% to 109% and claims there are more than 100 producers of polyester staple fiber in China. This is only the second antidumping petition filed in the U.S. in 2006.

The U.S. currently imposes antidumping duties on polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan. One of the petitioners, Nan Ya Plastics Corporation America, is a subsidiary of a Taiwanese producer of these products.
