Foreign-Trade Zone 45, Portland, OR; Application for Subzone Status for
Automotive Industrial Marketing Corp.
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Port of Portland, grantee of FTZ 45, requesting special-
purpose subzone status for the industrial tool distribution facility of
Automotive Industrial Marketing Corporation (AIM) and its subsidy AcraDyne
Corporation in Portland, Oregon, within the Portland 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, 1987.
The 2.4 acre facility is located at 1000 S.E. Pine Street, Portland.
Employing 30 persons, it is used to modify, relabel, repackage and
distribute hand-held pneumatic and electric industrial tools and screw
fastening robots, used primarily by auto assembly plants. Most of the tools
are purchased from foreign sources. AIM's products are distributed in
Canada and Mexico, as well as domestically.
Zone procedures will allow AIM to avoid duty payments on the foreign
products that are exported. On its domestic sales, the company would be
able to defer duty payments. No manufacturing approvals are being sought
at this time. Such requests would be made to the Board on a case-by-case
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: Joseph Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones Staff,
