Nanso Group Oy employs at the beginning of the year 2009 altogether 840 persons. After the layoffs the personnel will amount to be 770 from which 160 persons work abroad.

Business operation of Nanso Group has been affected by the still tightening common economic uncertainty and the difficulties of retail business. This can be seen in the underdevelopment of the income statement and turnover on 2008 and also in the low order stocks of this spring. The normal season sales of Christmas were affected by the discount sales that started earlier than normally. These sales have been remarkable especially for the tricot business. The capacity exceeds now the demand, which forces company to adjusts it to the level of demand.
