Whirlpool Ends Pursuit of Current Refrigeration Trade Appeal

Whirlpool Corp. said it achieved its goal of bringing unlawful appliance trade activity to the attention of the United States government and will no longer pursue the current refrigeration appeal. This follows a favorable ruling from the U.S. Court of International Trade earlier this month.

In early January 2014, Whirlpool won a favorable ruling from the U.S. Court of International Trade, in which the court agreed that errors were made in a 2012 trade remedy decision by the U.S. International Trade Commission. The case involved refrigerators imported from South Korea by LG and Samsung between 2008 and 2011.

"Because of our actions, there is no longer any doubt that dumping occurred and is occurring, both for washers and refrigerators," said Whirlpool Corp. Chairman and CEO Jeff Fettig. "We are encouraged that the Court ruled there were mistakes made by the Trade Commission in not finding injury in the refrigeration case, particularly after the Commission determined that U.S. appliance workers and consumers were harmed by foreign competitors' unlawful washer trade actions."

Fettig added, "Since we filed the refrigerator case, the U.S. marketplace, the products, prices, and the countries of supply have changed. Rather than pursue an appeal based on outdated data, we will put our energies toward continuing to monitor the U.S. appliance marketplace, evaluating potentially faster and more effective paths to achieve trade remedies and, when necessary, taking actions to defend U.S. manufacturing, innovation, and consumers."
