Download as PDF 60912 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 207 / Friday, October 26, 2007 / Notices survey of the workers’ firm’s declining customers. The investigation revealed that all vacuum cleaner motors produced by the subject firm were exported to Mexico and the subject firm had no domestic customers. The investigation further revealed that there was no shift in production from that firm to a foreign country nor did the subject firm import vacuum cleaner motors in 2005, 2006 and January through July 2007. The petitioner attached a letter from the subject firm’s customer indicating that this customer ‘‘discontinued use of the Molon motors in favor of an Asian sourced motor’’ and that this customer ‘‘was the sole customer using the motors produced’’ at the subject firm. The Department contacted the sole customer of the subject firm for further clarification. The customer confirmed that even though his firm is a U.S. based company, the production facility for which the vacuum cleaner motors were purchased is located in Mexico. The customer stated that all vacuum cleaner motors purchased from the subject firm were shipped directly to the Mexican facility and thus were exports. This facility in Mexico is now purchasing vacuum cleaner motors from Asia and there was no increase in imports of vacuum cleaner motors into the United States by this customer. Therefore, the loss of business at the subject firm is attributed to a loss in export sales. Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed in Washington, DC, this 19th day of October, 2007. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
