ATLANTA—The Cone Denim division of International Textile Group Inc. is reducing the capacity at its White Oak plant in Greensboro, N.C., which is expected to result in a layoff of approximately 150 employees there. Cone Denim said the layoffs will take place by the first week in December, leaving the 102-year-old facility with a workforce of approximately 550 people.
Delores Sides, director of corporate communications and human resources, said the reduction in volume is a direct result of increasing trends for U.S. retailers to seek imported denim fabrics and garments.
