The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are located at three sites (192.1 acres total; 876,453 sq. ft. of enclosed space): Site #1—Samsung Austin Semiconductor facilities (186.1 acres; 764,453 sq. ft.)—located at 12100 Samsung Boulevard in Austin, Texas; Site #2—HISCO facilities (4.1 acres; 62,000 sq. ft.)—located at 8330 Cross Park Drive in Austin; and Site #3— Three Way Inc. facilities (1.9 acres; 50,000 sq. ft.)—located at 4009 Commercial Center Drive in Austin. The facilities (approximately 950 employees) may be used under FTZ procedures for manufacturing, processing, warehousing, and distributing for export purposes only semiconductors and related devices. For Samsung’s current manufacturing, foreign-sourced materials account for approximately 26 percent of finishedproduct value. The application lists the categories of material inputs which may be sourced from abroad, including wafers (HTSUS category 3818.00), chemicals (2809.20, 2826.11, 2846.10, 3814.00) and photo resist (3707.90). Zone procedures would exempt Samsung from Customs duty payments on foreign components used in export production. Samsung would also be able to avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, estimated at no more than five percent of imported inputs. Samsung may also realize logistical/procedural and other benefits from subzone status. All of the abovecited savings from zone procedures could help improve the plant’s international competitiveness.
