Pegler Yorkshire proposes closure of Leeds branch

peglerUK plumbing and heating products manufacturer, Pegler Yorkshire, as part of an ongoing process, has undertaken a review of its operations with the objective of maximising efficiency and maintaining a competitive cost base, while continuing to underpin its growth strategy.

The review has highlighted that in order to continue its investment programme and drive growth in new technology products, the company needs to reduce its overhead structure. Pegler Yorkshire is, therefore, proposing to consolidate its five manufacturing sites which will, regrettably, mean the proposed closure of the Leeds facility.

As an employer of over 1,200 people across six sites and having invested over £25 million in Yorkshire in the last five years, Pegler Yorkshire remains committed to UK manufacture.

Consultations will commence with trade unions followed by up to 110 potentially affected individuals with a view to ensuring the best outcome is found for both employees entering the consultation process and the business as a whole. The consultation process will take up to 90 days to complete.
