Foreign-Trade Zone 37--Orange
County, NY; Application for Subzone Bally
Footwear and Accessories Distribution Facility New Rochelle, Westchester
County, NY (New York Port of Entry)
Friday, December 13, 1991
An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the County of Orange, New York, grantee of FTZ 37, requesting
special-purpose subzone status for the distribution facility of Bally, Inc.
located in New Rochelle, New York. 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 November 6, 1991.
The Bally facility (3.96 acres, 172,432 sq. ft.) is located at 20 Commerce
Drive, New Rochelle. The facility is used to inspect, package, and
distribute shoes and accessories, and to assemble shoe and accessory sets.
Accessories include handbags, leather goods, leather belts, men's
outerwear, neckwear, and executive leather goods. Most of the shoes and
accessories are purchased from abroad and a substantial portion is
Zone procedures would exempt Bally, Inc. from Customs duty payments on
products that are reexported. Damaged merchandise also would be exempt from
Customs duty payments. On sales to the domestic market, the company would
be able to defer duty payments. The applicant indicates that zone savings
will improve the plant's competitiveness in international markets and would
increase export opportunities to North and South America.
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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign
-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Jean
