NUTMEG MILLS/CUTLER PARENT VF CORP. CUTS JOBS IN MICHIGAN
Published December 14, 1995
VF Corp., the parent company of apparel manufacturers Nutmeg Mills and Cutler Sports Apparel, is consolidating its operations at Nutmeg's Tampa plant and cutting 500 jobs in Grand Rapids, MI. In St. Petersburg, Robert Keefe reports the consolidation "is an indication that VF's sports apparel business isn't growing fast enough" to support plants in both cities. Nutmeg markets its apparel "mainly through big department stores" such as JCPenney and Sears, while Cutler markets its products through discount chains such as Wal Mart and Kmart (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 12/14).
