Foreign-Trade Zone 100, Dayton, OH; Application for Subzone Chrysler Auto
Components Plant, Dayton 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Greater Dayton Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 
100, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the auto components plant
of the Chrysler Corporation in Dayton, Ohio. The application was submitted
pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 
USC 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was 
formally filed on September 28, 1987. 
 
   The 60-acre facility, which employs 2000 persons, is located at 1600 
Webster Street in Dayton. It is used to produce radiators, air conditioners,
heaters and electric fuel pumps. Some 2.3 percent of the components are 
sourced abroad, including blower motors, fuel pump motors, and materials 
for radiators.  
 
   Zone procedures would exempt Chrysler from Customs duties on the foreign 
components that are reexported either as auto parts or in assembled autos. 
On products shipped to U.S. auto assembly plants with subzone status, the 
company would be able to take advantage of the same duty rate available to
importers of complete automobiles. The duty rates on components used at the
five plants range from 3.2 to 5.0 percent, whereas the rate on autos is 2.5
percent. The savings will help improve the company's international 
competitiveness.  
 
   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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; John Nelson, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 6th floor, 
Plaza Nine Bldg., 55 Erieview Plaza, Cleveland, OH 44114; and, Colonel 
Robert L. Oliver, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Louisville,
P.O. Box 59, Louisville, KY 40201.  

   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They shall be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before November 16, 1987. 

   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:
