Bay Shipbuilding Expands
Foreign Trade Zone
Bay Shipbuilding Corp., of Stur- geon Bay, Wis., was recently granted an expansion of its Foreign
Trade Sub-Zone operations by the
U.S. Commerce Department. The expansion will allow Bay Shipbuild- ing to utilize facilities at its parent company, The Manitowoc Compa- ny, Inc., Manitowoc, Wis.
The expansion was necessitated by the aggressive shipbuilding pro- gram now in effect at the company.
Bay is presently constructing three oceangoing container vessels for
Sea-Land Service Inc., a subsidiary of Sea-Land Corporation, America's largest ocean transport company.
The Foreign Trade Sub-Zone ena- bles Bay to lower its costs by elimi- nating or lowering duties normally levied on imported materials and components. The expansion of the sub-zone to include designated buildings at The Manitowoc Com- pany will allow Bay Shipbuilding to increase its storage capacity, thus enabling the company to have mate- rials and parts readily available when needed.
Approval of the expansion was greatly expedited through the ef- forts of U.S. Congressman Toby
Roth and his staff.
