Felker Brothers Corporation Files Petition

(5/29/14) A Marshfield maker of stainless steel pipes and fabricating systems is the latest to ask the federal government to stop predatory pricing by foreign importers.

  Felker Brothers Corporation has filed a petition with the International Trade Commission, and U-S Senator Tammy Baldwin went to bat for the company at a hearing last week.  Felker accuses importers from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam of charging much less than their cost for the welded stainless steel pressure pipes -- and they've taken a quarter of the U-S market over the past two years.  This is not the first time Felker's in a battle over this.  It won its case in 2009 for anti-dumping relief, in the form of a duty on the importers.  Felker said it improved its sales until about 2012.  The company expects a decision on its latest request late next month.
