The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:18 Oct 16, 2008 Jkt 217001 amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on October 8, 2008. The proposed subzone would include Powell’s warehousing facility (10 employees, 96,000 sq. ft., 25 acres) located at 1568 JD Rogers Boulevard in Manning, South Carolina. The facility is used for the warehousing, distribution, and repair of foreign-origin and domestic industrial valve equipment (duty rates range from 3 percent to 5.6 percent) for the U.S. market and export. FTZ procedures would be utilized to support Powell’s distribution activity that competes with facilities located abroad. FTZ procedures would exempt Powell from Customs duty payments on foreign products that are re-exported. Some ten percent of the facility’s shipments are exported. On domestic sales, the company would be able to defer payment until merchandise is shipped from the facility and entered for U.S. consumption. Powell also plans to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly customs entry procedures. The application indicates that all of the above-cited savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness.
