BPI: Brampton packaging films plant to close

Continuing its round of restructuring and cost-saving programmes, PE film manufacturer British Polythene Industries (BPI, Greenock, Scotland / UK; www.bpipoly.com) will close its production unit in Brampton, Cumbria. The group has begun redundancy consultations with employees, with 39 positions slated to be cut.

The Brampton facility supplies film for packaging applications and BPI says it "has been marginal for several years but with a significant deterioration in 2009 due to lower volumes”. Production will be transferred to another BPI site.
