A total of 250 jobs are at risk after the Kodak Alaris facility in Harrow is set to close following a drop in business.
Announced on Wednesday (April 13), manufacturing operations at the facility, located on Headstone Gardens will cease by the end of the year.
The closure is cited as a result of a “drop in demand coming into the factory over the last 18 months".
Brian McGowan, head of operations at Kodak Alaris, told getwestlondon : “The site is unfortunately unable to develop a viable business plan for the future going forward.
“This is disappointing news to convey but unfortunately it is the best option for Kodak overall.”
The proposed action of closing the facility is subject to a 45 day consultation process with employees and union reps.
According to the company, the estimated impact is that around 250 people at the facility, which produces printing paper for businesses and consumers all over the world, will be affected by the decision.
Mr McGowan continued: “This decision is in no way a reflection of the performance of the site and we have had a long standing presence in Harrow, with many of the people being employed for many many years.
“This decision doesn't reflect on the employees.”
