The U.S. Commerce Department set preliminary duties of around 230% on the imports of kitchen cabinets and bath vanities from two Chinese companies amid an ongoing trade dispute between the two economic giants, the South China Morning Post reported.
The two companies are Henan AiDiJia Furniture and Deway International Trade. Some other companies will be charged between roughly 11% and 22%.
A final ruling will be announced in December, according to the report.
The American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance filed a case in March against alleged subsidization of Chinese imports of wooden cabinets and vanities. The U.S. reportedly imported $4.4 billion worth of wooden cabinets, vanities and related parts in 2018.
The U.S. recently announced plans to impose 10% tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese imports Sept. 1, gripping markets and sparking retaliation from China.
