Sinful Colors, a Revlon-owned nail-polish line, is warning state regulators of 117 layoffs in Beltsville as it closes the Prince George's County facility next year. The layoffs, set to begin Jan. 1, appear to be the Maryland manufacturing cuts that Revlon said in September would be coming as part of a global reorganization eliminating 250 jobs. The company would not say then how many layoffs would hit Maryland, or where its local manufacturing operations were located. State officials and a number of local economic development representatives said they didn't know the facility's location — even the Prince George's County Economic Development Corp.

Cosmetics firm Revlon Inc. says it is ending manufacturing operations in Maryland as part of a global reorganization that will eliminate about 250 jobs. The company refused to say Friday where its local facility is located or how many of the layoffs will hit there. The operation is not likely large — the Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland hadn't heard of it and state economic development officials could find no record of it. Revlon has not sent state regulators a layoff-warning notice, the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said.
