Slovenia at the forefront of mattress antidumping rates: highest among 12 countries

The U.S. Department of Commerce has made a significant announcement regarding the mattress antidumping petition, revealing its preliminary determinations on imports from 12 countries. Among them, Slovenia faces the highest rate, set at a staggering 744.81%.

Initiated in July, the petition was brought forward by prominent players in the mattress industry, including Brooklyn Bedding, Carpenter Co., Corsicana Mattress Co., and others. This move also garnered support from labour unions like the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the United Steelworkers.

The rates imposed vary across the countries involved, with Spain facing the lowest rate at 10.74% and India facing 23.28%, except for two companies, which are listed at 42.76%. Other notable rates include Bosnia and Herzegovina at 217.38%, Bulgaria at 106.27%, and Italy at 257.06%.

Interestingly, this action has prompted several companies in Mexico, such as Artaban and Kuka, to establish manufacturing facilities in Texas, indicating a potential shift in production dynamics.

It's important to note that these preliminary rates are subject to change before the final determination is made by the Commerce Department. However, the significant tariffs imposed reflect the seriousness with which the U.S. government is addressing concerns related to mattress imports and their impact on domestic producers.
