Dow confirms closure plan

US group Dow Chemical has insisted it is pressing ahead with plans to close the site in January.

According to nebusiness.co.uk, a consultation period has come to an end and 55 jobs are at risk.

The news seems to confirm what Stan Higgins at NEPIC (North East Process Industry Cluster) and the UK government told me last week. We’ll have to wait and see if a white knight emerges to rescue the operation, as some were suggesting (see earlier entries).
