USA: Tropical May Close Texas Fabric Cutting Facility
The company said it is evaluating a potential relocation plan that would see it consolidate those operations in Tampa instead of at Savane International Corp, in El Paso. It also announced it has begun winding up Farah Fiji Limited, which manufactured goods for its South Pacific division.
President, Christopher B Munday, said: "While the company has not made a final decision to relocate certain of Savane's El Paso functions to Tampa, the consolidation of some parallel operations appears to offer many benefits that we are now in the process of quantifying."
He added: "Tropical Sportswear International has determined that goods previously procured through Farah Fiji Limited can now be obtained more cost effectively through other sources."
