To support the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied additional information regarding subject firm’s foreign facilities which manufacture like or directly competitive products with those produced at the subject firm. Upon further contact with the subject firm’s company official, it was revealed that the subject firm significantly increased its import purchases of automotive foam seating during the relevant time period. 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.
