Alison Hayes closes production unit in Romania


Alison Hayes, one of the largest textile manufacturers in Romania, has closed its unit in Urziceni, which employed 350 seamstresses.

The company said it is reorganising its business processes in Romania “to improve the production and logistics functions in an operationally more efficient way to better meet demand from its customers”.

Company shareholders said the decision was the result of increasing production costs, including the rising minimum wage in Romania and the weakening of sterling following Brexit.
