McCambridge axes failing own-label sites
15 January, 2010
McCambridge has announced that it intends to close two of its own-label division factories as part of its strategy to streamline the business.
Group commercial director Neil Fraser said Lisa Bakery in Oldham, which produces predominantly Swiss- and mini rolls, and William Lusty in Heywood, Lancashire, which manufactures slab cakes, have "physical constraints" that do not facilitate economic growth.
"It is proposed to transfer the production at these sites to other north west-based manufacturing facilities within the own-label division of the McCambridge group," said Fraser. "We're not walking away from these products, we're just going to move them, and obviously this will require staffing at the other sites."
