[Order No. 767]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Rotorex Company, Inc.
(Rotary Compressors), Walkersville, MD

    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 Maryland Department of
Transportation, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 73, for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status at the rotary compressor
manufacturing plant of the Rotorex Company, Inc., in Walkersville,
Maryland, was filed by the Board on September 6, 1994, and notice
inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket
30-94, 59 FR 48850, 9-23-94); and
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the
application is in the public interest;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 73A) at the Rotorex Company, Inc., plant in
Walkersville, Maryland, at the location described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 1st day of September 1995.
