A U.S. representative of Chinese curtainwall company Yuanda has written to USGNN.com™ at length, responding to recent statements made by the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) and Curtain Wall Coalition (CWC) regarding a tariff scope case on Chinese curtainwall.

The AEC and CWC recently praised a decision by the U.S. Commerce Department in the Court of International Trade, which upholds its previous determination that certain aluminum curtainwall products from Yuanda and other Chinese companies are covered by antidumping and countervailing duty orders. Litigation in the case has continued since an initial scope ruling in early 2014.

In a near-2,000-word commentary submitted to USGNN.com™ titled “Whose Coalition is it Anyway?” Yuanda northwest USA sales manager John D’Amario calls the CWC’s efforts, now spearheaded by the AEC, “an all-out, misinforming-of-the-public jihad on Chinese aluminum.”

  1. Wow, someone got up on the wrong side of the bed. It is very hard to be sympathetic to the plight of any company who exports product from China. Obviously Mr. D’Amario lives in a bubble where his only concern is the dumping of aluminum. I live in the world of where China has developed a systematic strategy of dumping in hundreds of industries that has led to the depletion of the infrastructure of the United States. I am not even involved in this campaign but I can tell you that the game isn’t always fair, and the crap you are taking now is the same crap our domestic producers have been dealing with for the last three decades.

  2. Sounds like Bernard is the one in the bubble. Crikey!

  3. John may have woken up on the wrong side of the bed, but Bernard hasn’t woken up at all!
