Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has authorized an expansion of production authority at the Polaris Industries Inc. facility in Osceola, Wis. Polaris already had authority to produce spark-ignition internal combustion engines to equip snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, and motorcycles within subzone 167B and the FTZ Board has now added finished spark-ignition internal combustion engines for on-road vehicles and foreign status components to the scope of authority.

The FTZ Board has received from Greater Maricopa Foreign Trade Zone Inc., grantee of FTZ 277, a notification of proposed production activity at the CornellCookson Inc. facility in Goodyear, Ariz. CornellCookson already has authority to produce rolling steel doors within site 11 of FTZ 277 and the current request would add foreign-status components to the scope of authority. Comments on this proposal are due no later than Oct. 2.

The FTZ Board has received from the South Carolina State Ports Authority, grantee of FTZ 38, a request on behalf of BMW Manufacturing Company LLC to expand subzone 38A to include a site in Duncan, S.C. No additional authorization for production activity has been requested at this time. Comments on this request are due no later than Oct. 2.
