   Foreign-Trade Zone 136 -- Brevard County, FL; Application for Subzone 
Flite Technology Machine Parts Plant, Cocoa, FL 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Canaveral Port Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 
136, requesting subzone status for the machinery components manufacturing 
plant of Flite Technology, Inc. (FTI), in Cocoa, Florida, adjacent to the 
Port Canaveral 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 19, 1990. 
 
   The FTI plant (1.5 acres) is located at 411 Shearer Boulevard, Cocoa, 
Brevard County, Florida. It is used to produce machinery for the plastics 
industry, including feed screws, barrels and other injection and extrusion 
machinery parts. The primary materials used to produce the machinery parts 
are specialty steel mill products, including alloy steel bar, tool steel 
bar, feed screw blanks and hard facing. A portion of the specialty steel 
mill products are sourced abroad. A number of the finished products are 
exported.  
 
   Zone procedures will exempt FTI from Customs duty payments on the foreign
materials used to produce items that are exported. On its domestic sales, 
the company would be able to choose the finished product duty rate on 
finished machinery parts (3.9%). The duty rates on the foreign-sourced 
specialty steel range from 10.6 to 11.5 percent. The application indicates 
that the zone savings will improve the plant'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; Howard Cooperman, 
Regional Director, Inspection and Control, U.S. Customs Service, Southeast 
Region, 909 SE First Avenue, Miami, FL 33131-2595; and, Colonel Bruce A. 
Malson, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Jacksonville, P.O. 
Box 4970, Jacksonville, FL 32232-0019. 
 
   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 14, 1990.
 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
