In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on August 28, 2002, applicable to workers of Hankinson International, Washington, Pennsylvania. The notice was published in theFederal Registeron September 10, 2002 (67 FR 57456).

At the request of the United Steelworkers of America, Local 14693, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of compressed air treatment equipment.

New information shows that SPX Corporation purchased Hankinson Corporation, Washington, Pennsylvania in February, 2003 and is now known as SPX Corporation, Pneumatic Products Corporation.
