Ilyashev & Partners has helped Druzhkovka Hardware Plant PrJSC initiate an anti-dumping investigation into imports of steel fasteners from the People’s Republic of China to Ukraine.
Druzhkovka Hardware Plant PrJSC specializes in the production of metal products, including bolts, nuts, rivets for general machine-building, fasteners for the upper structure of railway tracks, and high-strength fasteners for engineering and bridge structures. The plant’s products are used by Ukrainian railways and exported to Poland, Turkey, Moldova, and Kazakhstan.
“Our team is concentrating on gathering the proof of the existence of dumped imports into Ukraine, which is causing material injury to the domestic industry," said Ilyashev & Partners Partner Olena Omelchenko, who is leading the firm's team. "We believe that imports from China are significantly distorting competition in Ukraine and may result in driving national manufactures from the domestic market. The application of interim anti-dumping duties will help to keep jobs in Ukraine and attract investments in the metal industry in the future."
