Letter Supporting American Wooden Cabinet and Vanity
Manufacturers in their ITC Trade Case Against China
Deadline: Wednesday, January 29th COB
Please join us in sending a letter to the International Trade Commission (ITC) urging the ITC to carefully consider the facts presented by the American cabinet and vanity industry during the final proceedings of the trade case against China and reaffirm
support for U.S. trade remedy laws.
The domestic cabinet and vanity industry represents more than 250,000 American jobs across America, including a wide range of positions involved in the manufacturing of cabinets or decorative laminate products. However, since 2015, imports of Chinese kitchen
cabinets have increased by more than 75 percent, as dumped and subsidized Chinese products have taken substantial market share away from U.S. producers.
In March 2019, the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance (AKCA) initiated one of the largest trade cases ever filed against China at the Department of Commerce and the ITC, asserting China engaged in unfair trade practices. In April, the ITC’s preliminary determination
found that the U.S. cabinet manufacturing industry was suffering material injury due to Chinese imports. The ITC is now in the final phase of its investigation into the trade case filed against China and it is critical that we encourage careful consideration
of the facts and strong support for U.S. trade laws.
Both strong U.S. trade remedy laws and the domestic cabinet and vanity industry are a vital component of a healthy American economy, and they deserve our support. For additional information or to cosign this letter, please contact Cole Baker (Cole.Baker@mail.house.gov
or 52815) or Mike Dankler (Mike.Dankler@mail.house.gov or 53915).
