Bookmark and Share

A Wendell clothing manufacturer is laying off 118 workers as it consolidates operations from three facilities to two locations in the state.

Mortex Corp., which currently employs 293 people, notified the N.C. Department of Commerce on Monday of the job cuts. It said some employees "may be offered" transfers.

The 29-year-old company said in its notice to state officials that it is shutting down its sewing facility in Princeton and consolidating sewing operations at its Middlesex facility.

Wendell will remain as the corporate office and the site for fabric receiving and centralized cutting.
