Retread Instead, a coalition of retread industry supporters created to enhance the awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of retreading throughout North America, praised the decision of the U.S. Court of International Trade’s decision to remand the negative U.S. Court of International Trade injury determination on truck and bus tires from China. The USITC will now review the USCIT decision and the underlying record as it considers how to proceed. The court has given the commission time to conduct the remand.
“Effective enforcement of U.S. trade remedy laws is very important to the U.S. retread industry,” said a statement from Retread Instead. “Retreading commercial truck tires in the United States is a 3 billion dollar industry that has significant economic & environmental benefits to our nation. There are well over 100,000 U.S. jobs in retreading and related industries that are being threatened by the importation of non retreadable truck and bus tires from China that are sold at below fair market value.”
