ITC FINDS LIKELY INJURY FROM MALAYSIAN STAINLESS STEEL PIPE

 WASHINGTON, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. International Trade Commission today determined that there is a reasonable indication that imports of welded stainless steel pipe from Malaysia are injuring or threatening injury to domestic pipe producers.
 The commission voted unanimously to continue the anti-dumping investigation, which was filed on Feb. 16, 1993, by four domestic producers of welded stainless steel pipe and the United Steelworkers of America. The ITC's ruling triggers the Commerce Department's further investigation to determine the margin of dumping on Malaysian pipe imports.
 The anti-dumping case against stainless steel pipe from Malaysia follows closely on the heels of anti-dumping duty orders issued against welded stainless steel pipe from Korea and Taiwan in December 1992.
 William K. Grant, chairman of the Specialty Tubing Group, and the president of the Trent Tube Division of Crucible Materials Corporation in East Troy, Wis., one of the petitioning companies, stated: "We are pleased that the ITC has preliminarily found that pipe imports from Malaysia are injuring U.S. producers. These results confirm our belief that unfair trading practices persist in our market."
 In addition to Trent Tube, the petitioners in this case are Avesta Sheffield, Inc., Schaumburg, Ill.; Bristol Metals, Bristol, Tenn.; Damascus Tube Division, Damascus-Bishop Tube Co., Greenville, Pa.; and the United Steelworkers of America.
