Macfarlane to close Hayes site as it consolidates operations

Macfarlane Packaging is to close its Hayes site and consolidate the operation into its Reading and Enfield operations.

The company acquired Lane Packaging Reading in May 2014 and has been reviewing how it can “most effectively service customers in the west London and Thames Valley areas”.

It is understood that there will be redundancies at the Hayes site, although Macfarlane did not say how many. The consolidation programme will commence in January 2016.

A spokesman for Macfarlane Packaging said: “In closing Hayes we aim to retain the majority of our Hayes staff who will join our teams at Reading and Enfield. We will also create additional positions at Reading and Enfield to manage their expanded customer base. Regrettably, there will be some redundant roles at the Hayes site.

“We are confident that this change will enable us to continue to provide an effective service to our existing customers in the west London and Thames Valley areas and give new focus to our growth plans in this region.”
