I toured that facility some time ago, it was a family run business and the owner had too much SG&A expenses tied up in supporting his family. Also, there were several Vice Presidents working there, just too much burden on the product considering the low annual sales.

Also, when I toured that facility the owner had people literally toiling away assembling and packaging some mechanical "snake" drain cleaning product for a major retailer. The people were over 95% utilized and the work environment was equivalent to what I have seen in China, except they didn't have a dirt floor. No one should have to work in those conditions in the U.S. for lousy wages.
