Longview, TX-based Norris Cylinder has announced that the US International Trade Commission has made a significant decision regarding the future for high-pressure steel cylinders in the US.

The commission has made a unanimous final determination that Norris Cylinder has been materially injured by imports of high-pressure steel cylinders that are being subsidized by the Government of China as well as being dumped into the US market by producers in China.

“Norris Cylinder is the last remaining producer of high-pressure steel cylinders in the US and one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-pressure and low-pressure gas cylinders for the storage, transportation and dispensing of compressed industrial gases”

The result of this decision is an imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on the subject imports. These duties are expected to create a fairer competitive environment in the US and enable Norris Cylinder to continue to provide its customers with high quality, high-pressure steel cylinders, as well as support investment in the production of high-pressure steel cylinders in the US and the US jobs created by that production.

Norris Cylinder is the last remaining producer of high-pressure steel cylinders in the US and one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-pressure and low-pressure gas cylinders for the storage, transportation and dispensing of compressed industrial gases.
