WASHINGTON, Aug 5 (Reuters) – Proposed U.S. European Union over airplane subsidies could focus market control over some products of copper alloy in the hands of a German-owned company, and hurt American businesses, U.S. 25 billion set of European imports facing 100% tariffs once an arbitrator from the World Trade Business later this season determines the problems triggered to U.S. Boeing Co. by federal government aid to its European rival Airbus.
11.2 billion worthy of of EU imports each year to compensate for damages, however the WTO number is likely to be lower. Over a dozen metal suppliers and processors testified at a USTR hearing on Monday that the proposed tariffs would strike copper alloys as well as from plane parts to Italian cheese.
Many witnesses urged USTR to drop the copper tariffs, which they said would raise the cost of materials used by the automotive, telecommunications, and energy sectors, triggering layoffs potentially. The primary beneficiary of the copper tariffs would be Wieland Werke AG, a Germany firm, month completed its acquisition of the Illinois-based Global Brass and Copper Holdings Inc. since it last, which was a dominant player in the U.S.

U.S. companies ended producing certain copper alloys several years ago carrying out a sharp decrease in the global copper market. Wieland had proposed producing such alloys in America, but the profits would eventually flow to Europe, they argued, noting that Wieland acquired clogged sales to certain U already.S. Charles Bernard, president of Eagle Metals Inc, said.
Olin Brass, a device of Global Brass and Copper and now part of Wieland, had urged USTR in May include the copper products to its list of EU imports facing possible tariffs. It argued that there is extra capacity in the U.S. EU imports allows it to revive domestic production.
But Nancy Rosenthal, president of a little Brooklyn-based company named Rotax Metals, informed the committee it would take long to repair U too.S.-based production and get those products qualified, and costs would shoot up if tariffs were imposed. Rosenthal, who now runs a company first founded by her father-in-law in 1947 after he fled Germany’s Nazi program. But Dale Taylor, chief executive of Wieland Rolled Products North America, turned down the concerns about enough time included and quality, and said the switch could easily be completed pretty. Franziska Erdle, director general of WirtschaftsVereinigung Metalle, the umbrella trade group that represents German metals producers and processors, said her organization opposed the tariffs, although Wieland is a member. She further declined to comment.
