A Flintshire firm has announced it will move to Romania, resulting in 90 job losses.

The closure of the Witter Towbars plant in Deeside has been called a 'betrayal' by Unite the union.

Jo Goodchild Regional Officer said:

The employees and their families are devastated, as you would expect. It is ironic that one of Horizon Global’s core values is to be ‘Socially Responsible’.

Decent, skilled jobs are being lost and this is a betrayal of the Witter’s employees who have worked hard to make this site and the Witter brand a success over the last 50 years.
