Foreign-Trade Zone 82 -- Mobile, AL; Application for Subzone ADDSCO 
Shipyard, Mobile 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the City of Mobile, Alabama, grantee of FTZ 82, requesting
special-purpose subzone status for the shipyard of ADDSCO Industries, Inc.,
in Mobile, Alabama, within the Mobile Customs port of entry. The application
was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as
amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 
400). It was formally filed on June 20, 1986. 
   The shipyard covers 215 acres on Pinto Island in the Mobile River, 
Mobile. The facility is used for construction, conversion and repair of 
commercial and military vessels and offshore oil and gas platforms, 
employing some 3000 persons. Foreign components used by the company include
diesel engines, gears, desk fittings, anchors, chain, desk machinery, 
windows, doors, life boats, and ventilation and air conditioning equipment.
This equipment accounts for up to 32 percent of vessel value on new 
construction and ranges from 5 to 15 percent on repair activity. 
   Zone procedures will help ADDSCO reduce costs on its current orders and 
compete internationally for new contracts. Most of the imported components 
are subject to significant duties while the finished products, as oceangoing
vessels, are duty-free. 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-
Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; 
David Willette, Acting District Director, U.S. Customs Service, South 
Central Region, P.O. Box 2749, Mobile, AL 36652; and, Colonel Carroll H. 
Dunn, Jr., District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Mobile, P.O. Box 
2288, Mobile, AL 36628.  
   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before August 7, 1986. 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:
