71 jobs at risk in TRW Aftermarket move from Luton to Czech Republic

TRW Automotive Aftermarket has announced the move of its Luton manufacturing activity to its Frydlant plant in the Czech Republic. The decision involves a potential reduction of 71 jobs in the UK, and consultations have been started the employees and their representatives.

Dave Harrison, Unit Manager, TRW Aftermarket Luton Plant, explained: “Given the increasingly competitive market environment and the resultant need to reduce our cost base, we have concluded that manufacturing operations at our Luton plant can no longer be sustained.

“Our long established, successful Czech factory already has highly qualified and experienced personnel and operates at considerably lower costs. The plant is also positioned to allow for future growth."
