Whereas, Board Order 745 (60 FR 30517, 6-9-95) granted authority on behalf of Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A. (KMM) to manufacture multi-axis industrial robots with six or more axes of motion under FTZ procedures for a limited time period (expires April 1, 2002), subject to extension;

Whereas, KMM, operator of Subzone 59A, has requested authority to extend its manufacturing authority for multi-axis industrial robots on a permanent basis;
