The Cookson Company, Inc. (Cookson) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Goodyear, Arizona within FTZ 277. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on July 13, 2015.

The Cookson facility is located within Site 11 of FTZ 277. The facility is used for the assembly and production of rolling steel doors. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.

Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Cookson from customs duty payments on the foreign status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, Cookson would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to rolling steel doors (duty-free) for the foreign status inputs noted below. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment.

The components and materials sourced from abroad include: hand and roller steel chains; limit switches; single-phase AC electric motors/gear motors; multi-phase AC electric motors/gear motors; steel cranks; motor overload protectors; mounted and unmounted timers for door closure assemblies; power boards; transformers (40VA or greater); electro-mechanical alarm interfaces; fire door testing releases and converter mechanisms; steel door limits; contactors; battery backups; and, steel bolts (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 6.6%).
