Crocs to close its remaining manufacturing plants

NIWOT, Colo. — Colorado-based casual footwear company Crocs Inc., is closing company-owned manufacturing plants in Italy and Mexico by the end of the year and replacing its chief financial officer.

The company announced the outsourcing of additional manufacturing and the closure of a distribution facility in Mexico Tuesday while reporting a second-quarter profit of $30.4 million, or 35 cents per share.

Crocs is also closing less productive retail stores as leases expire and focusing more on online sales.

Executive vice president Carrie Teffner is leaving the company by next April, but is stepping down as CFO on Aug. 24. Anne Mehlman, a former vice president of corporate finance for Crocs and current CFO of Zappos, will take over as CFO.

Crocs shares were trading at $18.70 at mid-day Thursday, compared to $8.50 on Aug. 9, 2017.
