Foreign-Trade Zone 50; -- Long Beach, CA; Application for Subzone Todd
Pacific Shipyards, Los Angeles
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the City of Long Beach,
grantee of FTZ 50, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the
shipyard of Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation (Todd) in Los Angeles,
California, within the Los Angeles/Long Beach 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 July 20.
The shipyard covers 109 acres at the head of the San Pedro Channel in
the Port of Los Angeles, Pacific Avenue and Front Streets, Los Angeles.
The facility is used for the construction and repair of commercial and
military vessels, employing 1700 persons. A significant proportion of
future contracts are expected to be with foreign countries. Foreign
components to be used include steel construction materials for hull and
superstructure, piping, tubing, fittings, cable, anchors, valves, engines,
pumps, gears, motors, winches, and navigation and communication equipment.
Zone procedures will help Todd 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, DC 20230; John
H. Heinrich, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 300
South Ferry St., Terminal Island, San Pedro, CA 90731; and Colonel Dennis
F. Butler, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Los Angeles, P.O.
Box 2711, Los Angeles, CA 90053.
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 September 18,
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each
of the following locations:
