Manufacturing, factory jobs part of 'Rust Belt' revival in Cleveland


Since the 1960s, dozens of manufacturing plants have shut down in Northeast Ohio. The factories that remain, like Jergens Inc. in Cleveland, are adapting with the times and seeing a comeback.

"Manufacturing, there's no question, was dropping off because we lost some support for it," said Jack Schron Jr, President of Jergens Inc. "And when they left, they went to China and places like that, but I can tell you there's still a lot of manufacturing in northeastern Ohio."
