                              (Order No. 638)

   Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Onkyo America, Inc. (Acoustical
                     Products), Bartholomew County, IN

                          Thursday, June 10, 1993

Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Order:

Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for other 
purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to qualified corporations the 
privilege of establishing foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. 
Customs ports of entry;

Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;

Whereas, an application from the Indianapolis Airport Authority, grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 72, for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone
for the electronic audio and acoustical products manufacturing facility of
Onkyo America, Inc., in Bartholomew County, Indiana, was filed by the Board
on October 17, 1991, and notice inviting public comment was given in the
Federal Register (FTZ Docket 61-91, 56 FR 56053, 10-31-91); and

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act and the
Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that approval of the
application would be in the public interest if initial approval is for a
limited time period;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 72K) at the Onkyo America, Inc., plant in Bartholomew County,
Indiana, at the location described in the application, subject to the FTZ
Act and the Board's regulations, including 400.28, for a period of 3 years
from the date of activation of zone procedures at the plant, subject to
extension upon review. The scope of authority for manufacturing under zone
procedures is limited to the production of small, industrial-use speakers
(including automotive speakers) and assembly/processing of consumer-type
electronic audio equipment.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 1st day of June 1993.

Joseph A. Spetrini,

Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
Committee of Alternates, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
