Hamlin Electronics to close UK plant

Electronic sensor maker Hamlin Electronics plans to close down its Norfolk manufacturing facilities in the United Kingdom.

Approximately 100 jobs are threatened over the next 18 months. The company plans to move its manufacturing operation overseas. According to Hamlin Electronics "ever-increasing global competition and the resulting pressure to drive down production costs has forced the company to re-evaluate its manufacturing presence in the UK". The company plans to keep its 'global technical centre' - which currently employs around 60 people - in the region. The first phase of job cuts could take place this month, The business reports. The remainder phased will go throughout 2008 and 2009. The company makes sensor components mainly for the automotive industry.
