Order Reinstated on TKS
BOLINGBROOK, IL—Goss International, based here, gained a victory in its ongoing battle with Japanese newspaper press manufacturer Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho (TKS) when the U.S. Department of Commerce reinstated the antidumping duty order against TKS due to fraud. The charge of fraud against the department stems from a $35 million judgment won by Goss in federal court, where TKS was found to have violated the Antidumping Act of 1916 by dumping its products on the U.S. market. TKS vows to contest any reinstatement of the order.
