Nearly half the workforce is to be cut at the Yorkshire factory of Drummond Parkland - just a year after the plant was bought by Chargeurs. The former Parkland Fabrics factory at Lockwood in Huddersfield was acquired in August last year. The business, which has traditionally been strong in the women's wear market, was combined with Bradford based Drummond - seen as complementary because of its presence in men's wear and bought a year earlier by Chargeurs - to create Drummond Parkland. The merged company was concentrated at the Huddersfield site.
