Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 913]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Unifi, Inc. (Polyester 
Yarn), Yadkinville, North Carolina

    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 North Carolina Department of 
Commerce, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 66, for authority to establish 
special-purpose subzone status for the polyester yarn manufacturing 
plant of Unifi, Inc., in Yadkinville, North Carolina, was filed by the 
Board on April 10, 1997, and notice inviting public comment was given 
in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 28-97, 62 FR 19546, 4-22-97); 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 Unifi, Inc., plant in Yadkinville, North Carolina 
(Subzone 66C), 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 30th day of July 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, 
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
