Foreign-Trade Zone 41--Milwaukee,
WI; Application for Expansion
Tuesday, November 12, 1991
An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Foreign-Trade Zone of Wisconsin, Ltd., grantee of FTZ 41,
requesting authority to reorganize and expand its zone in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, within the Milwaukee 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 October 29, 1991.
FTZ 41 was approved in 1978 (Board Order 136, 43 FR 46887, 10/11/78) and
expanded in 1981 (Board Order 178, 46 FR 40718, 8/11/81) and in 1985 (Board
Order 315, 50 FR 43749, 10/29/85). The zone project currently consists of 4
sites (200 acres): Site 1 (78,000 sq. ft.) within the Ace World Wide
Industrial Park, Milwaukee; Site 2 (120 acres) at the West Allis Industrial
Center, West Allis (former Allis Chalmers plant); Site 3 (3 parcels, 50
acres) within the City's Northwestern Industrial Park; and, Site 4 (30
acres) at Milwaukee's airport.
The applicant is requesting authority to delete Sites 1, 3, and 4 from the
zone project and add a site (new Site 1) at the Port of Milwaukee. This
site would cover the entire Port complex (300 acres), which is owned by the
City and operated by the City's Board of Harbor Commissioners. Zone
activity at this site would be conducted as a part of Port operations.
No approvals for manufacturing are being sought at this time. Such requests
would be made on a case-by-case basis.
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
