   Foreign-Trade Zone 15, Kansas City, MO; Application for Subzone; 
Metcraft, Inc., Grandview, MO 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Greater Kansas City Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of
FTZ 15, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the stainless steel 
sink plant of Metcraft, Inc., (affiliate of Emco, Ltd, Canada, in Grandview,
Missouri, for export activity. 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 September 5, 1989.  
 
   The Metcraft plant (13 acres) is located at 13910 Kessler Drive in 
Grandview, adjacent to the Kansas City Customs port of entry. The facility 
(100 employees) is used to produce plumbing fixtures and food service 
equipment. Subzone procedures would be used for the production of stainless 
steel sinks for export. Stainless steel sink stampings would be purchased 
from its Canadian affiliate and would be finished by welding, rounding, 
edging and polishing. Stainless steel drainboards would be added to some 
models. The finished sinks would be exported to Canada. 
 
   Zone procedures would exempt Metcraft from Customs duty payments on 
foreign materials and components (mainly the stampings) used for its export 
production. The savings would help encourage increased export activity at 
the Grandview, Missouri, plant. 
 
   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; Theodore 
Galantowicz, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 
7911 Forsythe Blvd., Suite 625, Clayton, MO 63105; and, Colonel John 
Atkinson, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Kansas City, 
700 Federal Building, Kansas City, Missouri 64106. 
 
   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 October 25, 1989.
 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:
