The FTZ Board has authorized additional production activity under zone procedures at the THOR Industries Inc. facility within subzone 100D in Jackson Center, Ohio. THOR already had authority to produce recreational vehicles within this subzone, and the production of commercial buses and foreign-status chassis has now been added to the scope of authority.

The FTZ Board has received from the Sacramento - Yolo Port District, grantee of FTZ 143, a request for subzone status at the Mitsubishi Rayon Carbon Fiber and Composites Inc. facilities in Sacramento, Calif. An application for production authority at these facilities is currently pending. These facilities are currently designated as subzone 143D, with authority expiring May 7, 2014. Comments on this request are due no later than April 30.

The FTZ Board has received from the Indianapolis Airport Authority, grantee of FTZ 72, a notification of proposed production activity at the Ingram Micro Mobility/Brightpoint North America L.P. facility within subzone 72S in Plainfield, Ind. Ingram already has authority for cell phone kitting within this subzone, and the current request would add to the scope of authority finished products and foreign-status materials/components for the kitting of pedometer products and accessories. Comments on this notification are due no later than May 12.
