CBS Evening News: Did anyone else see it tonight?
I'm looking for an online article or other information about the family-owned company that gave all of their ~230 employees at least $100,000 when the company was bought out. Anyone have any information?

1. It's been in the news several times and places in the last week or two.
I think I even saw a posting about it here before Thanksgiving.

3. There was a thread about it here recently
I'm sorry that I can't recall the name of the company. But the amount given to employees varied and it was a huge surprise to the workers.

5. I saw it in an online article the other day
A small machine company in the midwest it was -- bought out by a big Swedish or Norwegian firm. Gave workers bonuses of like $35,000, $25,000 and so on based on number of years of service, etc. plus new owners says workers will keep their jobs.

That's the only good news I've seen recently. Sorry that I can't recall the name of the company.

11. To be fair,
I remembered that it had been a family-owned ball bearing company.
