THE NETHERLANDS: Durea Moves Production Abroad
Dutch footwear maker Durea says it plans to transfer part of its shoe manufacturing from Drunen, southern Netherlands, to factories in Tunisia and India.
Durea presently makes 65 per cent of its shoes in Tunisia and India - a percentage that will increase to 75 per cent after the move.
The company aims to retain its Drunen development unit and plant for making testing samples and special products for orthopaedic shoe products.
