Brintons plans to end yarn dyeing at Kidderminster
Brintons Carpets has proposed plans to stop dyeing yarn at its site in Kidderminster, with the loss of 25 jobs.
Brintons, which has been in the town since 1783, has entered into a consultation period with production and engineering employees. Dyeing would be moved overseas.
‘The global coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on hospitality demand and we have to face the reality that as a result we need to consolidate our manufacturing operations,’ says Rob Greenfield, Brintons group manufacturing and logistics director.
He says the move would ensure Brintons continues to safeguard the company’s longer-term interests.
‘Kidderminster will continue to operate warehousing and distribution of residential carpet to our retail partners and also retains the group’s head office.’
