Audio firm 'to close Coatbridge plant'

A company that makes audio equipment is reported to have told workers at its Coatbridge factory that it intends to shut the plant, and move production to China.

Tannoy speakers are made in the North Lanarkshire plant, which has about 70 employees.

It is part of California-based electronics firm the Music Group.

The Music Group has been contacted by BBC Scotland but has not made a comment.

Specialist websites reported that the plan would also see research and development work and marketing move to Manchester.
