US mattress makers start antidumping complaints
Washington – Seven US mattress makers and two trades unions have filed petitions claiming that mattresses made in Cambodia, Malaysia, Serbia, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam 'materially damaging' US producers.
The US Teamsters and Steelworkers trades unions have bought the action along with Brooklyn Bedding, Corsicana mattress, Elite Comfort Solutions, FXI, Innocor, Kolcraft Enterprises and Leggett & Platt.
The USTC will consider the 'materially damaging' charge against imports from these countries.
Meanwhile, the US Department of Commerce will estimate whether they mattresses are being sold too cheaply. If it decides that they are it will instruct the US Customs and Border Protection agency to collect antidumping duties on imports from the countries involved.
