Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved the production of submersible and water pumps under zone procedures at the Liberty Pumps Inc. facility within FTZ 284 in Bergen, N.Y. These items include drain pumps, effluent pumps, condensate pumps and sewage pumps.

Separately, the FTZ Board has received from the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company, grantee of FTZ 7, a notification of proposed production activity at the Patheon Puerto Rico Inc. facilities in Caguas and Manatí, P.R. Patheon already has authority to produce pharmaceutical products at both sites and the current request would add a single input to the existing scope of authority. The associated final product, a drug used to treat diabetes, is already within this scope. Comments on this notification are due no later than Nov. 4.
