It was formally filed on February 16, 2010. The Luigi Bormioli facility (35 employees, 19 acres, $11.5 million in annual shipments) is located at 1656 Fuldner Rd. (Joey Zorn Blvd.), Barnwell, South Carolina. The facility is used for the storage and distribution of glass fragrance containers and glass tableware products (duty rate ranges from 3 to 38%). FTZ procedures could exempt Luigi Bormioli from customs duty payments on foreign products that are re-exported (approximately 2 percent of shipments). On its domestic sales, the company would be able to defer duty payments until merchandise is shipped from the plant and entered for consumption. FTZ designation would further allow Luigi Bormioli to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly customs entry procedures. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness.
