Car parts plant to shut with loss of 900 jobs
A struggling car parts factory is set to close, at a cost of 900 jobs, it was announced last night.
The Bosch plant in Miskin, near Cardiff, which makes alternators for the motor industry, is expected to shut at the end of an extended consultation period in February. The company began an initial 90-day consultation period in October.
Yesterday, Bosch said no new business has been found and the division in charge of the Cardiff plant will recommend to the Bosch board that production should be phased out and the plant closed.
