34 jobs to go as Neath clothing factory closes

A clothing factory in Neath Port Talbot will close with the loss of 34 jobs.

Robinson Webster Production Limited confirmed it was shutting its sewing plant at Milland Road Industrial Estate in Neath.

The factory makes clothes for a number of high-end fashion brands, including Jigsaw.

The firm said it was helping staff find alternative employment and six had already found new jobs.

A spokesman for the company said: "The group has been in consultation with staff for some time and has worked closely with Careers Wales and the local job centre who have visited the site to discuss job opportunities, retraining and CV guidance."

The company has not said why the factory had to shut.
