– Cllr Bryan Owen, Isle of Anglesey County Council leader
Our thoughts first and foremost are with those who will be losing their jobs in such a harsh economic climate. We will help them, but we must also ensure that this important strategic site continues to play a key role in the Island’s economic future.
The site still has the potential to play a huge role in the Island’s future economy and I’ll be making this clear when meeting with the Anglesey Aluminium Board, together with Welsh Government representatives, later next month.
Anglesey Aluminium Metal has confirmed it will close within the next two months, with 60 jobs being lost. Its has been in business at Holyhead for 40 years.
