  • UK Business

More than 550 UK jobs are at risk after an automobile and industrial firm announced plans to close plants amid “uncertainty surrounding Brexit”.

Schaeffler plants in Llanelli and Plymouth are earmarked for closure, with the firm proposing to relocate production to plants outside the UK.

It has started a 45-day consultation on the plans.

In Plymouth, 350 staff are employed in the factory and 220 are at the Llanelli plant.

The union Unite said it would “fight for every job”.

Assistant general secretary Tony Burke called the closures “yet another body blow for the UK’s automotive supply chain and the wider car industry”.

He said it showed what was “in store if the UK crashes out of the European Union without a deal that secures tariff free frictionless trade”.

Llanelli MP Nia Griffith said: “I am worried obviously about the affect on families in the area… and the possible knock-on effect on other local businesses.

“It is important to try to offer the company any help to try to persuade them to change their minds.”

She said Llanelli AM Lee Waters had already been talking to the Welsh economy secretary Ken Skates to see what was possible.
