    On June 16, 2008, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration applicable to 
workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was 
published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2008 (73 FR 36119).
    The previous investigation initiated on February 21, 2008, resulted 
in a negative determination issued on April 18, 2008. The decision was 
based on the finding that the number of workers separated from the 
subject did not constitute a significant number or proportion of the 
subject worker group (at least 5 percent) and there was no threat of 
future separations. The denial notice was published in the Federal 
Register on May 2, 2008 (73 FR 24318).
    To support the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied 
additional information regarding employment at the subject firm and 
indicated that a sufficient number of employees have been separated 
from the subject firm during November 2007.
    It was subsequently revealed by the company official, that the 
subject firm separated a significant number of workers during the 
relevant period and there was a threat of future separations.
    Upon further investigation it was determined that Ametek, Inc., 
Measurement and Calibration Technology Division, Sellersville, 
Pennsylvania supplied gauge component parts, including electrical cord 
reels, constant force springs, mechanical reels, and power springs that 
were used in the production of electronic instrumentation and gauges, 
and a loss of business with domestic manufacturers (whose workers were 
certified eligible to apply for adjustment assistance) contributed 
importantly to the workers' separation or threat of separation. The 
parts supplied were related to the articles that were the basis of 
certification.
    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

within the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of Ametek, Inc., Measurement 
and Calibration Technology Division, Sellersville, Pennsylvania qualify 
as adversely affected secondary workers under Section 222 of the Trade 
Act of 1974, as amended. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, 
I make the following certification:
