(Inkjet Cartridges), Hillsboro, OR An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Port of Portland, grantee of FTZ 45, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the inkjet cartridge manufacturing facility of Epson Portland Inc. (EPI), in Hillsboro, Oregon. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on January 4, 2005. The EPI facility (1 building, 184,492 sq. ft. on 16.61 acres) is located at 3950 Aloclek Place, Hillsboro, Oregon. The EPI plant (455 employees) is used for warehousing and manufacturing of inkjet cartridges (which includes the production of plastic injection molded cartridge parts); activities which EPI is proposing to perform under FTZ procedures. Foreign-sourced materials will account for some 50 to 55 percent of PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 total materials used in production, and may include items from the following general categories: ink (HTSUS 3215.11 and 3215.19), cleaning liquid for printers (3402.19), polypropylene colorant (3901.20), polypropylene resins (3902.30), labels and label tape (3919.90), sealing film (3920.10), tape (3920.62), silicone sheet (3920.99), urethane foam (3921.13), poly bags (3923.21), seals (4016.93), vent film (5911.10), seals/valves/springs (7320.10), nylon filters (8421.19), and ink degassing modules (8421.21).
