In the request for reconsideration, the Graphic Communications Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union, Local 503–M (Union) stated that the ‘‘import of foreign printed products put a severe economic strain on Canterbury Press, which forced the company to close.’’ The Department has carefully reviewed the Union’s request for reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation.

The Department surveyed these customers regarding their purchases of like or directly competitive products with printed paper for packaging during 2006, 2007, and January through February 2008 over the corresponding 2007 period.

The petitioner also alleged that Shorewood Packaging Corporation ‘‘had plans to open new facilities in Europe and Asia’’ and that Shorewood Packaging was outsourcing jobs from the subject firm overseas. The company official of the subject firm confirmed that Shorewood Packaging Corporation has facilities abroad and described the functions of each facility. However, the company official stated that there was no shift in production from the subject firm to any foreign facility in the relevant period.
