Another blow for Teesside chemicals; more Artenius layoffs

More workers at the Wilton, Teesside chemical site were laid off last week after administrators Deloitte decided to mothball the PET plant belonging to Artenius, the UK division of La Seda de Barcelona which is cutting costs.

A further 58 workers have been axed from a Teesside chemical plant which went into administration last month, according to
"This leaves just 49 staff at the plant. This follows the 137 workers who were laid-off when administrators Deloitte were called in at the end of July."

Deloitte is trying to find buyers for this plant. Read the background to the Wilton chemical site's shutdowns and its future in my latest article in ICIS Chemical Business: The Domino Effect
