Ardagh Group worker Graham Lewis says the company's Merthyr Tydfil employees are 'still in shock' following the announcement that the plant there is to close, with the loss of almost 150 jobs.
One hundred and forty six jobs will be lost as packaging company Ardagh Group announce that they will close their Merthyr Tydfil plant.
In May, the Luxembourg-based firm entered a consultation period with the workforce at the Merthyr Tydfil plant over proposals to close the branch as part of a strategic review of its UK operations.
Today, the company has confirmed that the consultation process has ended, and that the plant will close.
