Foreign Trade Admission Sought by Tdm


Hartley, Tim, THE JOURNAL RECORD


An Oklahoma City computer components manufacturer seeks admission to Foreign Trade Zone 106 near Will Rogers World Airport to save money and streamline its importing and exporting operations.

Ted Davis Manufacturing, 4027 Will Rogers Parkway, imports parts from Germany, mixes them with U.S. parts in the assembly of components for computer disc drive equipment, then exports the parts to Asia. The company, known as TDM, was founded by Davis in 1984, grew to 140 employees by 1988 and employs 250 now, said Purchasing Director Paul McKeithan.

If TDM is authorized to operate as a sub-zone of Foreign Trade Zone 106, employment is expected to grow to 300 or 350, McKeithan said.

The company's proposal was adopted Monday by the Port Authority of the Greater Oklahoma City Area, governing body of Foreign Trade Zone 106 for the City of Oklahoma City.

Carolyn Lyon, administrator of the Foreign Trade Zone, said TDM's application for sub-zone status will be forwarded to the Foreign Trade Zone's board in Washington, D.C.

Lyon said TDM imports $15 million to $18 million worth of foreign parts annually, and pays 3.5 percent to 3.8 percent duty. The parts are incorporated into components which are then exported to the Orient, entitling TDM to about $600,000 a year through U.S. Customs Service "duty draw-back" program, Lyon said.

She said a decision from Washington will be expected nine months to a year after the application is made.

"It will take time for the application to be written and approved, but they (TDM) understand this won't happen overnight," Lyon said.
