Spanish fibres company Dogi is planning to temporarily cut the hours of nearly 250 staff at its Barcelona factory, according to local media reports.

The company wants to shrink its workforce by 238 workers for 50 days during the present year, according to the reports, and is now awaiting trade union approval for the plans.

Dogi filed for bankruptcy last year and posted a loss of EUR25.6m (US$34.2m) in the first half of 2009.

It had previously said that it hoped to exit bankruptcy early in 2010.

Dogi failed to return just-style requests for comment.
