We are currently investigating Mcwane, Sigma Corporation, and Star Pipe Products for anti-trust law violations stemming from their distribution and sale of ductile iron pipe fittings (DIPF) since 2008.
Our law firm believes that McWane, Inc., Star Pipe Products, Ltd. and Sigma Corporation, conspired to artificially raise and stabilize the prices at which DIPF were sold in the United States to the detriment of their customers. These anti-competitive practices were only compounded in 2009, with the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which allocated more than $6 billion to water infrastructure projects but required that these projects use only American made materials.
In 2009 McWane effectively had a monopoly on domestically produced DIPF, and with the "buy American" clause of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, McWane had a strong interest in maintaining its dominant position on the domestic DIPF market. Our investigators believe that McWane conspired with Sigma and Star Pipe to maintain its monopoly on the domestically sourced DIPF market, and as a result of this, the pricing of DIPF products was artificially raised.
We believe that purchasers of ductile iron pipe fittings (DIPF) from Mcwane, Sigma Corporation, or Star Pipe Products may have paid artifically high prices for their fittings, and as such, may be victims of anti-trust law violations.
