DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [B–45–2014] Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 158— Vicksburg/Jackson, Mississippi, Notification of Proposed Production Activity, Southern Motion, Inc., (Upholstered Furniture), Pontotoc and Baldwyn, Mississippi The Greater Mississippi ForeignTrade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 158, submitted a notification of proposed production activity on behalf of Southern Motion, Inc. (SMI), located in Pontotoc and Baldwyn, Mississippi. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on June 20, 2014. A separate application for subzone designation at the SMI facilities was submitted and will be processed under Section 400.31 of the FTZ Board’s regulations. The facilities are used to manufacture and distribute upholstered furniture as well as cut-and-sewn upholstery covering sets. The proposal indicates that SMI seeks to utilize foreign-origin ‘‘micro-denier suede’’ fabric finished with a hot caustic soda solution that would be transformed into furniture upholstery covering sets under FTZ procedures. The finished upholstery covering sets would then be assembled into finished chairs, seats, sofas, loveseats, and sectionals manufactured at the SMI facilities in Mississippi. All foreign upholstery fabric other than micro-denier suede fabric used in SMI’s production within FTZ 158 would be admitted to the proposed subzone in domestic (dutypaid) status (19 CFR 146.43), thereby precluding FTZ-related duty savings on such fabrics. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.
