AUSTRALIA: Clothing Factory To Close With Loss Of 44 Jobs
Clothing manufacturer Can't Tear Em is close its Seymour factory next month with the loss of 44 jobs, bosses have announced.
Managing director, Geoff Van der Kolk, said the factory, which makes robust working clothes, was no longer viable, due to a slowdown in the market, and competition from imports. However, production would continue at other Can't Tear Em sites.
He said the 44 workers would receive their full entitlements, and that the company would do its best to employ them elsewhere in the group.
