Contour airline seat firm sheds 62 jobs in Cwmbran

An airline seat manufacturer is to make 62 workers redundant at a factory in south Wales.

» Actual | Friday, March 2, 2012 • BBC
Contour Aerospace Ltd, which employs 1,000 staff and contractors at Cwmbran, Torfaen, said it had been examining the long-term future of the business.

The firm says staff affected will be offered personalised support during a statutory consultation period unning until 30 March.

Contour will also cut 18 of the 200 jobs at its plant in Camberley, Surrey.

Competitiveness
 
The company, which supplies seating and aircraft interiors for many of the world's major airlines, said it remained "committed to building on its global market leadership to develop the company to its maximum potential".

It said the decision to cut a total of 80 jobs at its two plants was the conclusion of an 18-month process to ensure the long-term competitiveness of the business.

The firm said the redundancies would affect employees across the majority of departments.

In December it was announced that Contour was being sold to French rival Zodiac Aerospace SA.

At that time, senior managers said it was "business as usual" and there was no impact expected for the workforce from the takeover.
