US: Fruit of the Loom unit shifting distribution?
Vanity Fair Brands, a subsidiary of Fuit of the Loom, is planning to bring 200 jobs to its Monroeville plant, say local reports.
It follows the closure of Vanity's South Texas distribution centre, reported Associated Press. The transfer is expected to take place by the end of next year, added AP.
Fruit of the Loom acquired Vanity Fair in April this year when it bought VF's intimate apparel business for $350m.
