Oregon Ink Cartridge Facility Gets Revised FTZ Production Authority

Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved a revision to the existing production authority for the Epson Portland Inc. facility within subzone 45F in Hillsboro, Ore. EPI already had authority to produce at this facility inkjet ink cartridges from certain non-privileged foreign status ink components as well as bulk ink from certain privileged foreign status components. However, EPI said the bulk ink it produces for export involves some of the same foreign materials and components as its inkjet cartridge production. The FTZ Board has now approved the admission of these components to the subzone in NPF status for use in bulk ink production and to subsequently place the finished bulk ink in zone-restricted status prior to export.
