Remploy: Neath and Porth sites threatened with closure


The last two Remploy factories in Wales, employing about 140 people, are at risk in another round of closures.

Workers at the sites in Neath and Porth in Rhondda have been told they face compulsory redundancy.

The UK government is asking for "expressions of interest" from firms willing to take on the plants which employ people with disabilities.

Remploy's Bridgend site will close in March. There were nine in Wales but six of these have already shut this year.
