Mettler-Toledo, Inc., Spartanburg Product Organization, Inman, 
SC; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    By letter dated May 2, 2005 a company official requested 
administrative reconsideration regarding the Department's Negative 
Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment 
Assistance, applicable to the workers of the subject firm.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
signed on April 18, 2005 was based on the finding that the worker group 
does not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the 
Trade Act of 1974. The denial notice was published in the Federal 
Register on May 16, 2005 (70 FR 25860).
    The petitioner provided additional information relating to products 
manufactured at the subject facility.
    New information provided by the company illustrates that the 
workers of

[[Page 36208]]

the subject firm were engaged in production of engineering models and 
customer prototypes during the relevant period. Workers are not 
separately identifiable by production line. The investigation also 
revealed that sales, production and employment declined during the 
relevant period. The investigation further revealed that company 
imports of models and customer prototypes increased from 2003 to 2004 
and during the period of January through March of 2005 when compared to 
the same period in 2004.
    The workers of Mettler-Toledo, Inc., Spartanburg Product 
Organization, Inman, South Carolina were under an existing Trade 
Adjustment Assistance (TAA) certification (TA-W-51,640) which expired 
on April 25, 2005.
    In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department of Labor herein presents the results 
of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply 
for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers.
    The group eligibility criteria for the ATAA program that the 
Department must consider under Section 246 of the Trade Act are:
    1. Whether a significant number of workers in the workers' firm are 
50 years of age or older.
    2. Whether the workers in the workers' firm possess skills that are 
not easily transferable.
    3. The competitive conditions within the workers' industry (i.e., 
conditions within the industry are adverse).
    The Department has determined that criterion (1) has not been met. 
The investigation revealed that a not significant number of workers in 
workers' firm are 50 years of age or older.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the initial investigation, I conclude that 
increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those 
produced at Mettler-Toledo, Inc., Spartanburg Product Organization, 
Inman, South Carolina, contributed importantly to the declines in sales 
or production and to the total or partial separation of workers at the 
subject firm. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the 
following certification:

    ``All workers of Mettler-Toledo, Inc., Spartanburg Product 
Organization, Inman, South Carolina, who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after April 26, 2005 through two 
years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for 
adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, 
and are denied alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 
246 of the Trade Act of 1974.''

    Signed in Washington, DC, this 8th day of June, 2005.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
