Columbus-based t-shirt company Skreened is moving apparel production jobs to other cities, Columbus Business First reported.
The move will leave more than 30 Skreened employees without jobs. Approximately 20 employees in marketing, web development and business support are expected to remain with the business.
Founder and owner Daniel Fox told Business First his company is working with other local businesses to help its employees find new jobs and is providing some financial support to the workers.
The company, founded in 2006, allows its community of more than 20,000 users to upload their own apparel designs, which it then manufacturers and sells through the Skreened.com marketplace.
Ohio State fans may remember that OSU sued the company for selling unlicensed Buckeyes and Urban Meyer designs in 2012. Last year, a U.S. District Court judge found the company had infringed on the university’s trademarks. Skreened paid an undisclosed sum in damages and legal fees to OSU as a result.
