CNBC: What does it take to keep your manufacturing job in the U.S.?
Does everyone know Topps trading cards-- the iconic baseball and football cards that kids trade and "flip" in school?
Since 1938, Topps has been proudly making their sports cards in the U.S.
When asked why Topps has kept its operations in the U.S., CEO Ryan O'Hara explained in a CNBC interview this morning that the Topps team "really value manufacturing being close to us." The advantage, he explained, is that "it gives us the ability to react quickly" to changing trends and logistical issues.
In an accompanying interview on CNBC's Worldwide Exchange, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Executive Director Scott Paul echoed O'Hara's points. He explained that American-made goods mean quality and value. Consumers know they are getting safe and reliable products when they buy "Made in USA."
