Fear of impending China tariffs may have actually given some toymakers a cushion against the early impacts from the recent coronavirus outbreak. "If there's a delay of two, four, six weeks in getting the flow going again, we should be able to cover that. Still, Foreman said workers at the company's factories live throughout China, so many need to travel from central and northern China to the southern provinces where the factories are located. "We're searching all over to get masks to send over to China because the people can't return to work and really can't even leave their homes without the masks." Foreman said his company has been exporting masks made in the U.S. to China.cnbc.com
Toymaker CEO: I would have had to lay off employees if Sunday's tariffs were imposed
Basic Fun CEO Jay Foreman told CNBC on Friday that the company would have had to lay off employees in the new year if an initial trade deal with China didn't work out. If the levies were implemented, Foreman said, about 15% of Basic Toys' U.S. workforce and a handful of international employees would have been laid off. Reports of a potential phase one trade deal began circulating this week, with sources telling CNBC on Thursday that a phase one deal had been reached between the world's two largest economies. However, confusion ensued Friday morning when Trump tweeted that a report was "completely wrong, especially their statement on Tariffs." But I really am happy to hear the president announce the phase one deal."cnbc.com
