[Order No. 841]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Motch Corporation (Turning
and Grinding Machinery); Euclid, OH

    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 Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port
Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 40, for authority to establish
special-purpose subzone status at the vertical and horizontal turning
and grinding machinery manufacturing plant of the Motch Corporation in
Euclid, Ohio, was filed by the Board on August 11, 1995, and notice
inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket
43-95, 60 FR 43760, 8-23-95); 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 40H) at the Motch Corporation plant in Euclid, Ohio,
at the location described in the application, subject to the FTZ Act
and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28. As indicated in the
application, the scope of manufacturing authority is limited to
vertical and front turning centers, vertical numerical chuckers,
horizontal self loaders, and vertical and universal grinders.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 1st day of August 1996.

Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
