US pipe and tube producers have recently filed an anti-dumping case against imports of light-walled rectangular tubing from Mexico and Turkey. The eight US petitioners, stating that the dumping margins ranging from 48% to 84% exist on the imports from Mexico and 3% to 61% exist on the imports from Turkey, determined that the imports from the two countries are injuring US industry materially. These petitioners are California Steel and Tube, Hannibal Industries Incorporated, Leavitt Tube Company LLC, Maruichi American Corporation, Northwest Pipe Company, Searing Industries Incorporated, Vest Incorporated and Western Tube and Conduit Corporation. According to the petition, imports from Mexico with an increase by 37% reached up to 145'000 tons in 2002, compared to import of 106'000 tons recorded in 2000, while imports from Turkey increased to 31'000 tons in 2002, compared to 10'000 tons recorded in 2000. It is also stated that the imports from these two countries have continued to increase in 2003. Imports of light-walled rectangular tubing from Mexico and Turkey are excluded from the scope of Section 201 safeguard measures imposed by Bush administration in 2002.
