Printing Press Vendor Cleared Of Charge
The U.S. Commerce Department has determined that MAN Roland
Druckmaschinen AG is not price-dumping newspaper printing presses
sold recently in the United States.
The feds’ finding effectively suspends enforcement of a 1996
dumping order imposing high duties on the German company and
foreign press makers Koening & Bauer, Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries, and TKS.
MAN Roland will not have to pay anti-dumping duties on presses
exported to the United States and will not have to maintain a
cash deposit for possible future anti-dumping duties.
Goss Graphic Systems, which brought the original dumping
complaint, has filed an intention to object to the government’s
determination, a Commerce Department spokesman said.
