The article reports that leather upholstery maker Natuzzi SpA has reduced employee shifts at its plants in Italy from eight hours a day to five. Accounting to slowdown in business, the company has started the reduction in hours in the second week of June 2007 and is projected to last for 13 weeks. The reasons cited are the challenging business conditions that are affecting all major markets and the adverse currency trends that are depressing the order flow.
