The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has found that innerspring units exported from China are being dumped on the Canadian market, causing injury to the domestic industry. The finding applies to innersprings with or without edge guards.
Anti–dumping duties are to be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The amount of the duty and the reasons for the finding had not been announced at press time.
The complainant in the case was Globe Spring & Cushion Co. of Toronto, a division of Leggett and Platt. L&P filed a similar complaint in the United States, which, in early 2008, resulted in anti–dumping duties on innersprings from China, Vietnam and South Africa.
