Outsourcing production

It no longer appears to be economically feasible to produce terry articles in the Netherlands. Production in the Netherlands is phased out and transferred to Turkey. The company name is changed to Wevotex. This is followed by a move from the old factory building to an office with warehouse in an industrial area of Enschede.
