The government says that the Kasai factory in Merthyr Tydfil will close with a loss of approximately 180 jobs

The Welsh government and local politicians have said that Merthyr Tydfil’s Kasai plant will shut down with around 180 jobs that should be rejected.

The company, which manufactures internal parts for Honda, Jaguar Land Rover and Nissan, is said to close its factory at Triangle Business Park in June 2021.

This follows Honda’s decision to withdraw from Swindon next year, with around a fifth of Kasai’s sales to the Japanese automaker.

Labor MP for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, Gerald Jones, published the reports on his Facebook page.

In a joint statement, Jones and Assemblyman Dawn Bowden said, “We are very disappointed to hear Kasai’s announcement, although the news is not a total surprise given Swindon’s position at Honda.

“This is the latest in a series of job losses in our constituency, which demonstrates the vital importance of intensifying support and intervention for those companies that can help support local jobs.”

The Welsh government has told the BBC that it will offer support through its ReAct program, adding: “[we will] continue to do everything possible to explore the options for the site. “

This follows the news that the Ford Bridgend plant will close in September of this year. The plant employs 1,700 people directly and more in the supply chain.

Kasai was contacted for comment.
