Northwood to close Penygroes facility

Northwood propose the closure of their Penygroes manufacturing facility

The Directors of Northwood Hygiene Products have regretfully announced the proposed closure of the Penygroes, North Wales, manufacturing facility.

The proposal, which affects 94 employees, was made as part of a strategic review of business operations, given the rapidly changing landscape and market conditions.

As part of the review, various alternative options were considered, but the contraction in market demand as a consequence of COVID-19, and the subsequent significant fall in current and forecasted sales volumes has led to this very difficult decision being made.

Northwood is fully committed to following a consultation process with all employees and trade union representatives and will commence a collective consultation process which will last for a minimum of 30 days.

The proposed closure will not have a negative impact on the service that the company provides to their customer base. Production will be absorbed, and customers will be serviced from other Northwood sites in Telford, Oldham, Birmingham, Lancaster and Bromsgrove.
