[Order No. 716]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Group Technologies
Corporation (Electronic/Computer/Telecommunication Equipment) Tampa, FL

    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 City of Tampa, Florida, grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 79, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status at the electronic/computer/ telecommunication equipment
manufacturing plant of Group Technologies Corporation located in Tampa,
Florida, was filed by the Board on July 26, 1993, and notice inviting
public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 35-93, 58
FR 41709, 8/5/93); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the 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 79B) at the Group Technologies Corporation plant in
Tampa, Florida, at the location described in the application, subject
to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 9th day of November 1994.
