Belpre Doll Company Shipping Jobs Overseas

By Bruce Layman | 

A Wisconsin-based doll company says it plans to move some of its production from Belpre, Ohio, to China.

The Middleton Doll Company says it will cut 35 jobs as a result of the move.

Middleton says it will continue to operate its factory store at Belpre.

Company officials say eight employees are to continue working at the store, and a few others will produce dolls there.

The Chinese production facility already supplies some of Middleton's dolls.
