Antitrust enforcement: radiator manufacturers feel the chill

July 08 2010The Competition Council has announced that it has fined four Belgian steel plate radiator manufacturers - Masco, Quinn, Caradon and Radson (now called Rettig) - for participating in a cartel in the steel plate radiator market in Belgium. The Competition Authority's investigation was based on two leniency applications. The investigation revealed that the four manufacturers had shared commercially sensitive information and had coordinated the gross wholesale price of steel plate radiators between 2003 and mid-2006. Three of the manufacturers pleaded guilty. The council's report on the case states that by exchanging commercially sensitive information, the four manufacturers intended to align their behaviour and pricing in the market in question.

As such, the action was prohibited under Belgian and EU competition law. The council decided to impose a total fine of ... Read More
