Workers at the subject firm produce whole- and half-side leather sides, and are not separately identifiable by product line. The negative determination was based on the Department’s findings that the subject firm did not shift production to a foreign country and that neither the subject firm nor its major declining customers increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those produced by the subject firm. In the request for reconsideration, a company official alleged that ‘‘many shoe manufacturers, including those in our backyard, transferred their purchasing of tanned leather to those facilities in Asia’’ and that ‘‘the leather industry in the United States has all but disappeared.’’ A careful review of previouslysubmitted material shows that, during the relevant period, the subject firm may have supplied component parts for articles produced by a firm with a currently TAA certified worker group.
