The European Commission will not impose any anti-dumping measures on imports of continuous filament glass fibre products originating in Bahrain and Egypt. A consortium of European importers and end users which included GRP Solutions, has been fighting the imposition of anti-dumping duties on glass fibre. Investigations into the case had begun on May 3, 2019.

“Through the hard work of all those involved, including legal counsel at trade law firm Van Bael & Bellis, we are delighted to announce that the European Commission has decided not to impose any provisional measures. We hope the European Commission will continue to take into account the interests of Europe’s GFR user industry and that the case will be formally closed in July 2020 once the Commission has concluded its investigation,” GRP Solutions said in a statement.

Brian Harpur, managing director of GRP Solutions, said: “This initial result is a huge success in our efforts and those of the consortium of European users and importers to protect UK and European composite manufacturing from unwarranted trade tariffs which would have driven up manufacturing costs. I am also hopeful that this announcement will now draw to a close the unhelpful and unsubstantiated rumours that have been peddled in the market since May 2019. I would also like to pay tribute to Jushi Group for all their support during this process.”

Jushi Group is the world’s leading fibreglass manufacturer. GRP Solutions has a highly experienced team of composite experts, dedicated to setting the standard in composite distribution.
