BRP, Inc., received a business boost recently in its marine operations when the United States Department of Commerce (DOC) decided there has been dumping of outboard engines on the part of Yamaha Motor Corporation in the U.S. DOC has ruled that a duty of 22.52% will apply to all Japanese-made engines and powerheads imported into the U.S. beginning immediately.
“(This) announcement confirms that Yamaha has competed unfairly by selling outboard engines in the United States below what they sell in Japan,” said Roch Lambert, executive vice president. “The corrective action that will result from this ruling, which affects all Japanese manufacturers, should contribute towards returning the American market to a level playing field,” concluded Lambert.
BRP offers a broad range of American designed and manufactured outboard engines to meet the needs of consumers in the U.S. and worldwide.
BRP is a world leader in the design, development, manufacturing, distribution and marketing of Sea-Doo watercraft and sport boats, Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, Johnson and Evinrude outboard engines, direct injection technologies such as Evinrude E-TEC(TM), Bombardier ATVs, and Rotax engines and karts. psb
