(Filed Under Fashion News). On January 28, Delta Apparel announced plans to close its Fayetteville, North Carolina textile manufacturing facility in June 2009.
According to the company, approximately 107 of the employees at the facility will lose their jobs, while 550 will continue employment. The Fayetteville facility houses textile production for Delta's M.J. Soffe business, which they plan to move to their facilities in Maiden, North Carolina and Honduras. The company expects to save approximately one million annually by shutting down the plant.
The company's president and chief executive officer, Bob Humphreys, commented: "As our business becomes increasingly competitive, we can no longer justify the additional cost associated with operating two US textile facilities."see more
