Consumer goods giant Unilever is proposing to close a number of sites with the loss of up to 800 jobs, while investing £40 million in its biggest UK factory, the firm announced today.
The plans involve the closure of factories in Swansea and Slough and a distribution site in Bridgend, while an office Ewloe, North Wales would also close and work be transferred.
The proposals include investment of £40 million in Unilever's "historic home" of Port Sunlight, Wirral on Merseyside, with the creation of 150 new jobs.
Work would transfer from Ewloe to Port Sunlight, where the workforce would increase from the current 1,500 to 2,000.
