Toy manufacturer WHAM-O is bringing 50% of its Frisbee production to the US, in a move that aims to increase manufacturing jobs State-side.

The company will begin domestic production of Frisbees at the end of this month through a partnership with Manufacturing Marvel America, a division of the international Manufacturing Marvel Group that specializes in plastic injection molding for toys and operates facilities in California and Michigan.

Prior to WHAM-O’s initiative with Frisbees, the company began producing one of its PoolZone products in Michigan this past August.

The toyco started designing and manufacturing products in 1948, launching with the WHAM-O Slingshot and went on to create the Slip ‘N Slide, Hula Hoop and Hacky Sack. WHAM-O designs and manufactures a core of more than 70 products.
