    A major toy manufacturer plans to hire about 400 new workers to staff a new distribution center in eastern Pennsylvania.

    Mattel has opened the 1 million-square-foot center in the Gateway Logistics Park area of Jonestown.

    The company will package popular toys including Barbie and Hot Wheels brands at the center, which will also handle Mega Brands and, eventually, Fisher-Price. The company says the center will employ as many as 400 during peak season.

    The center is located at the junction of Interstates 81 and 78. It will be Mattel's East Coast hub because it's centrally located to most customers in that region. Mattel is headquartered in El Segundo, California.
