 SINGER WILL OBTAIN SMALL ELECTRIC APPLIANCES
 MANUFACTURED IN THE UNITED STATES
 EDISON, N.J., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of a program to restore small electric appliance production to the United States, Singer Sewing Company will have part of its small appliance line manufactured in the United States, John Flaherty, president of Singer North America, announced today. This will be the first in a series of steps to shift production of Singer appliances to the United States and initially will create about 300 jobs in this country.
 Beginning in March, some of these products will be manufactured in the Washington, N.C., area, Flaherty said. "Singer has selected this site because of the large number of skilled workers available there. North Carolina has been the site of small appliance manufacturing for more than three decades."
 Small electric appliances produced by Singer, N.A. include blenders, sandwich makers, steam presses, waffle makers, coffee makers, irons, rice cookers and electric woks.
 Flaherty said that it was altogether fitting that Singer, which developed the first commercially viable sewing machine in America in 1851, should have small electric appliances produced on these shores and tied to one of the oldest names in American manufacturing. The company headquarters in Edison, N.J.
