Samsung’s Response to the International Trade Commission Section 201 Vote
We are disappointed with the International Trade Commission’s decision to find injury. Restrictions on imports of Samsung washing machines will negatively affect American consumers by limiting choices, raising prices, and offering less innovative washing machines.
We remain committed to establishing our North American home appliance manufacturing facility in South Carolina and to delivering the most innovative washing machines, made by Americans, and sold to American consumers. We urge the Commission to consider carefully how potential remedies might hinder the establishment and operations of this facility and affect American consumers.
We believe that safeguard remedies should not discriminate in favor of one group of U.S.-based workers over another and should not negatively impact a fair appliance marketplace for consumers.
