Delta Apparel Moves Some N.C. Production To Honduras

Delta Apparel Inc. , Greenville, plans to transfer some of its fabric production for basic T-shirts from its Maiden, N.C., plant to its Ceiba Textiles facility in Honduras, in an effort to lower costs for those products.

The consolidation will reduce fabric production in Maiden by 35 percent and increase it at Ceiba by 8 percent to some 900,000 pounds of fabric weekly. It also is expected to shorten production cycle time and reduce costs by some $1.1 million annually.

The move will result in the loss of 70 jobs at the Maiden plant, which will retain 190 employees to produce fabric for its U.S.-made marketed goods and private-label products along with its Mexico sewing operations.
