GRP Solutions Ltd joins European consortium to fight against anti-dumping

GRP Solutions Ltd joins European consortium to fight against anti-dumping measures being imposed on glass fibre reinforcements from Egypt and Bahrain.

GRP Solutions Ltd and Jushi Group would like to draw fibreglass users’ attention to the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation by the EU against certain fibreglass materials from Egypt and Bahrain following a complaint brought by the European Glass Fibre Producers Association (APFE).

In response to the initiation of the investigation on the 3rd May 2019, GRP Solutions Ltd has joined a number of European importers and end users to form a consortium to oppose any anti-dumping duty measures being imposed.

It is vitally important that UK end users of glass fibre materials affected have an opportunity to advise the EU of the impact that anti-dumping duties will have on their business. Composites businesses in the UK employ over 40,000 people. The creation of tariff barriers and a reduction in free trade with economies such as Egypt will only increase costs for UK composite businesses and damage employment both in the UK and in Egypt.
