LONDON (ICIS)--Goodyear will inform workers at its French tyre plant in Amiens, north of Paris, on 31 January about its strategy for the facility, the US-based international tyre major said on Friday.

Goodyear was responding to French media reports that the company would close the Amiens plant in 2014, affecting about 1,250 jobs.

However, in a statement to ICIS, Goodyear would not confirm that the plant will be closed.

“In line with French legislation, the company will first share all relevant information with the members of the company’s central works council during [a] meeting [on 31 January]” before making any further communication, it said.
