Obama to make fiscal cliff case at Pa. toy factory

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - November 29, 2012

Obama will speak Friday at The Rodon Group manufacturing facility in Hatfield. The company, founded in 1956, makes toys for K'NEX Brands.

Michael Araten, president and CEO of both companies, says they moved $50 million worth of manufacturing from China to the United States at the height of the recession.

He says there are two 130,000 square-foot facilities in Hatfield, where workers make about 5 billion parts a year. Araten says business is back above pre-crash levels. There are about 200 employees at the site, up 25 percent from the recession.
