The City of Conroe, Texas, grantee of FTZ 265, submitted a notification that proposes a revision to existing production authority approved on behalf of Bauer Manufacturing Inc. (Bauer), located in Conroe, Texas. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on January 9, 2014.
Bauer has authority to produce pile drivers and leads, boring machinery, foundation construction equipment, foundation casings, related parts and sub-assemblies, and tools and accessories for pile drivers and boring machinery within Site 1 of FTZ 265 (see, 78 FR 52759, 8-26-2013). Under the existing authority, Bauer voluntarily admits all foreign-origin steel products subject to antidumping and countervailing duty orders to FTZ 265 in domestic (duty-paid) status (19 CFR 146.43(a)(2)). The specific foreign-origin steel products in question are cold drawn/rolled steel pipes and tubes, threaded pipes, and seamless tubes. In the current request, Bauer seeks to admit all foreign-origin steel products subject to antidumping and countervailing duty orders to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41) under the standard restriction established in Section 400.14(e)(2) of the FTZ Board's regulations.
