CITT Decides to Maintain Anti-dumping Measures on Wallboard for Another Five Years

CertainTeed Canada Inc, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain of France, has welcomed a decision by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) to maintain anti-dumping measures for drywall in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territories for another five years.

In an expiry review issued yesterday, the CITT found that U.S. drywall dumping will cause material injury to the domestic western Canadian drywall industry if current anti-dumping measures are not maintained. As a result, current anti-dumping measures will be maintained for another five years.

Julie Bonamy, CeratinTeed Canada’s CEO, said, “CertainTeed Canada is committed to free and fair trade; we have helped shape the Canadian building products industry for more than 80 years. In Western Canada, we own and operate three drywall manufacturing plants and are committed to support our customers and employees through our facilities in Vancouver, Calgary, and Winnipeg.”
