                               [Docket No. 10-87] 
                                  52 FR 30699 
                                August 17, 1987 
Foreign-Trade Zone 45, Portland, OR; Application for Subzone Status for 
Automotive Industrial Marketing Corp. 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Port of Portland, grantee of FTZ 45, requesting special-
purpose subzone status for the industrial tool distribution facility of 
Automotive Industrial Marketing Corporation (AIM) and its subsidy AcraDyne
Corporation in Portland, Oregon, within the Portland 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 July 20, 1987. 
   The 2.4 acre facility is located at 1000 S.E. Pine Street, Portland. 
Employing 30 persons, it is used to modify, relabel, repackage and 
distribute hand-held pneumatic and electric industrial tools and screw 
fastening robots, used primarily by auto assembly plants. Most of the tools
are purchased from foreign sources. AIM's products are distributed in 
Canada and Mexico, as well as domestically. 
   Zone procedures will allow AIM to avoid duty payments on the foreign 
products that are exported. On its domestic sales, the company would be 
able to defer duty payments. No manufacturing approvals are being sought 
at this time. Such requests would be made to the Board on a case-by-case 

   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: Joseph Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Clyde Kellay, District 
Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 511 NW. Broadway, Fed. 
Bldg., Portland, OR 97209; and Colonel Gary R. Lord, District Engineer, U.S.
Army Engineer District Portland, P.O. Box 2946, Portland, OR 97208. 
   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before September 24,
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
the following locations.
