Sport-Haley Inc is to close its golf apparel manufacturing operation located in Four Oaks, North Carolina. The plant is the latest casualty of the company's increasing focus on offshore sourcing. Sport-Haley acquired a majority interest in the cutting and sewing manufacturing plant in 1998 and increased its ownership to 100 per cent from 1998 through fiscal year 2000. It now anticipates that its wholly-owned subsidiary, B&L Sportswear Inc (B&L), will cease manufacturing operations on or about August 10, 2001. The B&L facility currently employs approximately 35 people.
