Expanded FTZ Production Authority Sought for Pennsylvania Heavy Equipment Facility
The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received from GE Transportation a notification of proposed production activity at its facilities in Lawrence Park and Grove City, Pa., within subzones 247A and 247B. GE Transportation already has authority to produce locomotives; off-highway vehicle wheels, inverters and brake systems; components, spare parts and subassemblies for locomotives and off-highway vehicles; drill equipment; marine equipment; stationary equipment; diesel locomotive engines; engine turbo chargers; power assemblies; other engine assemblies; and engine components and spare parts under zone procedures at these locations. The current request would add finished products and foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Inputs classified under HTSUS Chapter 32 and subheadings 4202.12, 5207.10, 5602.90, 5603.94, 5607.50, 5608.19, 5609.00, 5806.31, 5909.00, 5910.00, 6303.92, 6305.20, 6307.90, 7019.19, 7019.51 and 9404.90 would be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status, thereby precluding inverted tariff benefits on such items. Comments on this notification are due no later than April 7.
