'Venca' reduces staff in Vilanova i la Geltrú
CIFDSA – the company behind the mail order clothing brand Venca – has announced personnel reductions at its headoffice in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Garraf). In a so called ERO (expedient de regulació d’ocupació) - now in the hands of the Generalitat de Catalunya - the company argues that after four consecutive years of losses, by now letting 86 of 473 people go, it will be possible to get back to profitability within two years.
The cuts will hit all departments – customer service, logistics and the central staff – and is a response to big sales drops throughout Spain and even more so in Portugal, which is also served from here.
CIFDSA and the brand Venca belong to the French mail order group 3 Suisses International.
