3M, in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, reveals 12 posts could be affected in changes
ABOUT 12 workers could lose their jobs at a protective coatings firm.
3M, in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, is carrying out a review of its electronics and energy division, which could affect up to 50 workers across several countries.
Bosses have started a 30-day consultation period with staff, which they say could result in up to 12 job losses at Northallerton.
Steve Adams, business director for 3M's UK electronic and energy business group, said: “We recognise the impact that this proposal will have and it is always difficult to make decisions that affect people’s livelihoods.
"We will be consulting employees in a professional, honest, open and fair manner.”
The factory, which employs 57 workers, makes protective coatings for steel pipes in the oil, gas and construction industries.
Its sister plant, in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, employs about 330 workers and makes industrial face masks.
