Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 846]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Plastic Products Company,
Inc. (Plastic In-Line Skates), Lindstrom and Princeton, Minnesota

    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 Greater Metropolitan Area Foreign
Trade Zone Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 119 (Minneapolis,
Minnesota, area), for authority to establish special-purpose subzone
status at the plastic in-line skate manufacturing facilities of the
Plastic Products Company, Inc., in Lindstrom and Princeton, Minnesota,
was filed by the Board on February 29, 1996, and notice inviting public
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 17-96, 61 FR
9676, 3-11-96); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's report, and finds 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 119E) at the Plastic Products Company, Inc., plants in
Lindstrom and Princeton, Minnesota, at the locations described in the
application, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations,
including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 24th day of September 1996.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
