NEW HAVEN, Ind.--- Vera Bradley has announced plans to phase out a shift that 150 people work in an effort to reduce the manufacturing capacity at its New Haven plant.

The News-Sentinel reports that the producer of quilted accessories will cut about a quarter of the plant's manufacturing capacity by eliminating its second shift in the next couple of months.

A spokeswoman says the company is offering buy-outs to employees who leave voluntarily. The company may also allow employees to move to the first shift or transfer to one of three other facilities in northeast Indiana.

The plant in New Haven currently has about 360 full-time employees and produces around 7 percent of all Vera Bradley products.
