While the pandemic put a strain on many businesses, Marble King did what they’ve done for the past 20 years—they made it a point to add one new country to their customer list.

This year, it was New Zealand.

Beri Fox, president & CEO of Marble King, says they now export to 30 foreign countries, and they’re grateful to 3 local colleges—West Liberty, Bethany and Wheeling University—for help in translating.

They say online translating sites are not always able to convey the right message.

Marble King began manufacturing marbles in 1949.

They create a million marbles a day.

They’ve been featured on TV with everyone from Steven Colbert to Martha Stewart, and were recently visited by the Discovery Channel for a special that will air in the fall.
