Workers at a Kidderminster- based carpet company are being told they should be back at work full-time after Easter.
The firm blames the losses on US clients ordering nylon carpets
About 200 employees at Brintons are working reduced hours because the firm has suffered a downturn in orders.
The company is laying off 20 temporary staff at the Worcestershire base and a further 70 at its plant in Shropshire.
The company is hoping this marks the end of job cuts, and is urging remaining staff to look to the future.
Brintons is blaming the losses on a switch from wool to nylon carpets by its commercial clients in the United States.
Managing director Harry Reilly said they were relying on the revival of the US economy to help them out.
"The US market is important and it is recovering," he said.
"We are taking this opportunity to rebalance our stock levels and I am confident that we should be back in balance by the end of April."
Brintons said 50 of the redundancies at the its plant on the Halesfield Industrial Estate in Telford would be made at Easter with the rest of the jobs going at Christmas.
The Telford site is mostly used for spinning wool.
