As Waynesboro's Invista plant witnesses' improvement and increased competitiveness in its Lycra and Spandex operations, it intends to hire additional 20 to 25 employees, as per a company spokesperson, Erica Taylor.

First group of workers will be joining in August. Apart from new applicants, few former Invista employees had also applied for the recruitment, said Taylor. The company is witnessing more Lycra or Spandex production than expected, she added.

The employee requirement has emerged after 19 months of the company's announcement of mass layoff, which had also including 200 employees, along with loss of over 100 contract jobs. And the second layoff was announced last year.

Invista followed strategies aiming to escalate Lycra and Spandex production in Waynesboro, which resulted in to improvement of the workers' productivity in recent months, informed Taylor.

The planned layoffs announced in the month of November were attributed to the demand plunge in carpet and apparel industries.
