Unilever factory in Swansea to close
The Unilever factory in Swansea will close with the loss of around 225 jobs, it was announced today.
The consumer goods giant confirmed factories at Swansea and Bridgend will shut by the end of 2013 with the loss of 250 jobs, and Ewloe in Flintshire will close by the end of 2014 with the loss of another 100 staff, with 400 jobs moving to Port Sunlight, Wirral.
Swansea AM Mike Hedges said: “Although I’ve been told that Unilever plans to offer jobs to staff facing redundancy in Swansea at their new base in Merseyside, I sincerely doubt that this will be of any consolation or benefit to the 225 local people that will now lose their job as a result.”
The former Alberto Culver factory at Swansea's Enterprise Park makes personal care products; in Bridgend the company has a distribution site.
