USA: Royce Hosiery Axes 75 West Virginia Workers
According to Royce spokeswoman Barbara Rosenthal, the move will allow the company to focus more on the marketing and distribution side of its business.

She said the company would continue to employ about 100 people at Martinsburg, while legwear and sock production would be moved to another unnamed US plant.
