Nafpaktos Textile Industry, a major producer of cotton combed yarns, is to cut off 125 job positions at its Nafpaktos site.

Nafpaktos Textile Industry announced Tuesday 5th May 2009 that it will temporarily cease the production of threads due to the cost of production exceeding current market prices. The company will continue to sell threads from its reserves and will resume production once market conditions improve. As such 125 people will loose their jobs.

The Company's main activities include cotton ginning, the production of yarns and fabrics as well as ready-made clothing.
