Amicus comment on closure of two Simclar factories in Ayrshire Scotland

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 29, 2007) - Amicus regional officer, Bernie Hamilton "This is the almost the final nail in the coffin for 'Silicon Glen'. The sector has been in sharp decline since the mid-nineties and against all odds Simclar had continued with its Scottish operations until now. Unfortunately it was inevitable that lower labour costs abroad would bring about the demise of this Scottish sector. This is a bad news for the local communities effected."
