    Foreign Trade Zone No. 68 Celebrates 25th Anniversary

    On October 10th the City of El Paso and El Paso International Airport hosted a celebration to commemorate 25 years of service of the Foreign Trade Zone No. 68.

    In 1982, the transfer of the Grant of Authority from El Paso Trade Zone Incorporated to the City of El Paso received approval from the U.S. Foreign Trade Zones. FTZ No. 68 is the largest volume general purpose FTZ on the U.S./Mexico Border and is one of the top ten in volume in the United States. Since its inception, the FTZ program has provided U.S. based companies with opportunities to stay competitive in the global markets.

    The original 1982 branding plaque was displayed in honor of the celebration. Mr. Pat Abeln, Director of Aviation branded the original plaque with a new 25 Years FTZ branding iron.
