Expansion

An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Akron-Canton Regional Airport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 181, requesting authority to expand its zone in the Akron-Canton, Ohio area, adjacent to the Cleveland/Akron 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 10, 1996.

FTZ 181 was approved on December 23, 1991 (Board Order 546, 57 FR 41, 1/2/92). The general-purpose zone currently consists of 110 acres within 2,121-acre Akron-Canton Regional Airport in North Canton, Ohio. An application is currently pending with the Board to expand the zone to include three additional sites in Trumbull, Columbiana and Stark Counties, Ohio (Docket 56-96).

This application is requesting authority to further expand the general-purpose zone to include two sites in Summit County (Akron area), Ohio: a warehouse facility on a site (30 acres) at 1779 Marvo Drive, Summit County; and, a warehouse facility on a site (5.5 acres) at 989 Home Avenue, Summit County. Both sites are owned/operated by Terminal Warehouse, Inc. No specific manufacturing requests are being made at this time. Such requests would be made to the Board on a case- by-case basis.

In accordance with the Board's regulations, a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board.
