Car parts plant in Carmarthenshire to close

Schaeffler are consulting with employees on their plans over the next 45 days, and both Lee Waters and Nia Griffith are offering their support to employees during this hard period.

While its biggest plant, in Sheffield, will be retained, Schaeffler said the work of its two logistics centres in Hereford and Sutton Coldfield would be combined at Hereford. "However, we remain committed to keeping certain activities in the United Kingdom, a country that will continue to be important to us".

"We've been warning for over two years that our future access to the single market needs to be secured, but the failure of the UK Government to agree a deal has created huge uncertainty for businesses which has clearly been a big factor in 220 jobs in Llanelli being under threat".

Greig Littlefair, managing director of Schaeffler UK, said the firm wants "transparent and fair discussions with the employees affected".

The company has more than 92,000 staff worldwide.

Parts for auto companies are manufactured at Llanelli, while the Plymouth site mainly produces spindle bearings and machine parts for the firm's industrial division.

Plaid Cymru's Welsh Assembly Member for Mid and West Wales, Helen Mary Jones, said the closure of the Llanelli plant will lead to the loss of 220 jobs.

But I have a challenge to convince clubs to improve the current World Cup we already have. It is decided in March, but I am not a prophet and I don't know if it will be approved.

I am extremely concerned to hear that Schaeffler are planning to close their plant in Llanelli, which has been a well-established part of our community for over 60 years.

The move, which puts hundreds of jobs at risk, comes a day after French tyre maker Michelin said it would close a Scottish factory and as time is running out for an agreed Brexit process, without which trade could be heavily disrupted. "Without clarity, we will be facing a blind Brexit, with the business-critical detail decided from a position of weakness outside Europe".

Schaeffler plants in Llanelli and Plymouth are earmarked for closure, with the firm proposing to relocate production to plants outside the UK.

"This is yet another body blow for the UK's automotive supply chain and the wider vehicle industry", Unite assistant general secretary Tony Burke said.

"It is worrying that the company mentioned "uncertainty surrounding Brexit" as one factor behind the decision to leave Wales".

"Behind the closures and the uncertainty now gripping the vehicle industry and component manufacturing are people with bills to pay and families to feed".
