TARMAC is consulting on closing its site in Tallington.

The business in Barholm Road, Tallington, started consultation yesterday with the 217 staff who work at the Tarmac Precast Concrete site.

Chief executive officer of Tarmac Building Products Blair Illingworth said: “We have taken the difficult decision to propose the closure of our precast solutions and flooring business.

“Unfortunately, this means that around 217 people at Tallington are at risk of redundancy. It is not a decision we have taken lightly and we are very conscious of the impact this will have on our employees, their families and the local communities around our sites if the closure goes ahead.”

Mr Illingworth said the proposal had come about because traditing conditions “are still tough” and demand for products “remains uncertain”.
