NETHERLANDS: Ten Cate to reorganise Technical Fabrics unit
Specialist textile maker Royal Ten Cate is restructuring its Advanced Textiles division to focus on high-grade textile activities, with the loss of 47 jobs.
The reorganisation will see its Ten Cate Technical Fabrics unit concentrate on high-grade production activities, such as coating and flame-resistant finishing - while low profit finishing activities for third parties will be stopped.
The plans also see the Technical Fabrics production activities being integrated with Ten Cate Protect at a later date.
