An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Illinois International Port District, grantee of FTZ 22, requesting an expansion of Subzone 22N on behalf of Michelin North America, Inc. (MNA). The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally docketed on June 9, 2015.
Subzone 22N was approved on April 5, 2006 (Board Order 1440, 71 FR 19692, 4-17-2006), and manufacturing was authorized within the subzone on February 28, 2007 (Board Order 1503, 72 FR 10642, 3-9-2007). The subzone currently consists of the following site: Site 1 (34.9 acres)—25850 S. Ridgeland Avenue, Monee, Will County.
This request would add a site (69.7 acres) located at 29900 South Graaskamp Boulevard in Wilmington, Will County, to the subzone. The applicant is also requesting that Site 1 be removed from the subzone following a transition period to allow merchandise to be transferred to the new site. No additional authorization for production activity has been requested at this time. With this request, Subzone 22N would be subject to the existing activation limit of FTZ 22.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, Elizabeth Whiteman of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to review the application and make recommendations to the Executive Secretary.
