Phillips-Van Heusen To Close Ozark Plant

The last manufacturing facility New York City-based Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. operates is set to close by May 15. Approximately 500 jobs will be eliminated when the Ozark, Ala., plant — which manufactures roughly 5 percent of the company’s dress shirts — closes. The apparel company contracts manufacturers abroad for its remaining production.

Plant closing costs including severance will total about $10 million, and annual savings of about $5 million are expected in 2007, according to Phillips-Van Heusen.

“This was a difficult, but inevitable, decision based on the competitive environment in the apparel industry and the expiration of import quotas in 2005,” said Emanuel Chirico, CEO. “We are very sorry to have to close the facility, and we are committed to working with local economic development authorities to do anything we can to help market this facility to other potential employers.”
