Congressman Tim Ryan Applauds Positive ITC Ruling for Ohio Steel Companies

Sep 13, 2016 Issues: Infrastructure, Manufacturing

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan today applauds the International Trade Commission’s (ITC) positive ruling for Ohio Steel Companies. The ITC determined that the U.S. steel industry has been unfairly injured by hot-rolled steel imports from Australia, Brazil, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United Kingdom. This ruling will result in new antidumping (AD) and countervailing (CVD) duty orders against these countries’ steel imports.

“Unfortunately we have seen firsthand the result of unfair trade practices. Plants shutdown, family and friends lose their livelihood – there is a rippling effect that touches every part of the community. I will continue using my position in Congress to fight to unstack the deck, because no one can out-compete the United States of America,” said Congressman Ryan.

Companies with Ohio facilities affected by this case:

  • U.S. Steel: Lipsec, Lorain,             
  • Nucor: Cincinnati, Marion, Orrville,                        
  • ArcelorMittal: Cleveland, Columbus, Marion, Pioneer, Richfield, Shelby, Warren
  • AK Steel: Coshocton, Mansfield, Middletown, Walbridge, Zanesville
