Sink complaints hold water with investigators

Published by Steve Coleman on May 28, 2012

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has sided with two Ontario stainless steel sink makers who say Chinese manufacturers were dumping product on the Canadian market.

Coldwater and Franke Kindred Canada Ltd. launched appeals with the tribunal last September after discovering certain Chinese-made sinks on the market were selling for less than the raw material costs Canadian manufacturers paid.

The price of stainless steel feedstock for manufacturing plants was the same on the world market for every manufacturer, Coldwater said.

As a result of the investigation, Canada Border Services Agency is expected to put a surtax on certain Chinese-made sinks to help even the playing field.
