Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 890]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status ZF Industries, Inc.;
(Automotive Axles); Tuscaloosa County, Alabama

    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 FTZ 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 City of Birmingham, Alabama,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 98, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status for the automotive axle manufacturing plant of
ZF Industries, Inc., in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, was filed by the
Board on April 16, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was given
in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 31-96, 61 FR 18375, 4-25-96); 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 grants authority for subzone
status at the ZF Industries, Inc., plant in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama
(Subzone 98B), at the location described in the application, subject to
the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.
