A hundred and seventeen jobs will be lost at Jeyes cleaning supplies factory in Mold, it's been announced.
A spokesperson said the factory will close early next year with production transferring to Norfolk.
It follows a lengthy and thorough strategic review of Jeyes’ global operations, announced to staff in December 2011.
We recognise that this decision will come as a great disappointment to our loyal and hard working staff, who have maintained consistently high standards throughout this review period.
We will continue to consult with, inform and support our staff through the closure programme and will work with unions and local authorities as appropriate.
