Jobs at risk at German car parts manufacturer Up to 180 jobs are at risk following the German car component manufacturer Mahle revealing that is considering closing its plant in Telford.

The company said its decision was due to a decline in order levels and a “planned reduction in investments
and production locations”.

Mahle (www.mahle.com), which makes engine systems and components used for mobile machinery, rail transport and marine applications throughout the world, said in a statement: “Against this backdrop, the competitiveness of the location is no longer sustainable despite the continuous investments of recent years.

Mahle therefore is considering the closure of the production location in Telford and consultations will commence with employee representatives shortly.”

In 2018 Mahle had more than 79,000 employees in over 30 countries and generated sales of over £11 billion.
