US: Label-maker Paxar to lay off 112 workers
New York-based tag and label maker Paxar is to axe 112 jobs at its largest North American production facility by the end of the year as it goes ahead with plans to move some production to China.
Paxar currently employs about 532 at the plant in Lenoir, which is located about 70 miles north west of Charlotte.
News of the layoffs was widely expected since last autumn, when the company revealed plans to move much of its domestic apparel-related production overseas in the next two years.
The restructuring also could affect plants in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Rock Hill.
