Chinese Innerspring Supplier Hit With Penalties

In a preliminary decision issued Aug. 21, the U.S. Department of Commerce determined that Macao Commercial Group, based in Macau, is in violation of a U.S. antidumping order on innersprings from China. According to the Commerce Department, Macao Commercial circumvented the antidumping order by assembling innersprings in Macau from components made in China. Macau is a semi-autonomous administrative region on the south coast of China. As a result, the United States has imposed a 235% duty on all unsold innerspring units exported to the United States by Macao Commercial on or after Nov. 22, 2016.
