    The Makita facility (300 employees, 75 acres, up to 3 million units 
per year capacity) is located within Site 20 of FTZ 26. The facility is 
used for the manufacture of hand-held power tools and gasoline/

radios; grips, thumb screws, knobs and handles; wrenches; switch units; 
power cords; flanges; screws; nuts and bolts; rubber rings, sleeves, 
grommets and plates; screws; ball bearings; battery covers and lenses;

hand-held power tools and gasoline/electric-powered garden products 
that Makita may produce under FTZ procedures in the future. New major 
activity involving these inputs/products would require review by the

    FTZ procedures could exempt Makita from customs duty payments on 
the foreign components used in export production. The company 
anticipates that some 47 percent of the plant's shipments will be 
exported. On its domestic sales, Makita would be able to choose for the 
foreign inputs noted above the duty rates during customs entry 
procedures that apply to: Engine blowers; pneumatic compressors; 
pneumatic tools; table, slide and compound miter saws; drills and drill 
kits; drill and saw kits; drill, grinder, hammer, sander, planer, 
router and screw driver kits; gasoline/electric-powered brush cutters; 
and hedge trimmers (duty free--4.5%). FTZ designation would further 
allow Makita to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly 
customs entry procedures. Customs duties also could possibly be 
deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The request 
indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the 
plant's international competitiveness.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Christopher Kemp of the 
FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and 
information presented in the application and case record and to report 
findings and recommendations to the Board.
