Mercer County would like to invite businesses that import products from international markets to attend a free, informative seminar, The Mercer County Foreign Trade Zone Breakfast.  The seminar, which includes a continental breakfast, will take place from 8 to 10:30 AM on October 13th at the Mercer County Boathouse, 334 South Post Road, Mercer County Park in West Windsor.

The program will feature presentations from Christopher Kemp, a FTZs Board official at the U.S. Department of Commerce along with Mercer County representatives who will offer insight into the benefits and the expectations of the FTZ.  In addition, the County recently reduced their FTZ fee schedule, generating further savings for FTZ operators and making the FTZ rates the lowest in New Jersey.

“The Mercer County FTZ provides a unique opportunity for Mercer County businesses that import products from overseas to reduce costs and increase profit margins,” stated County Executive Brian M. Hughes. “Considering our significant reduction in overall fees in 2022, now is an even better time to reap even greater savings under this program”.

Located throughout Mercer County, the Mercer FTZ allows companies to achieve duty deferral, reduction and/or elimination on products that they purchase oversees.

For more information or to register, please contact Mercer County Business Advocate Darren Stewart at (609) 989-6912 or

There is no cost to attend this event.
