10 May 2024

Purmo Group continues to assess its manufacturing footprint and operational efficiency as a part of its strategy acceleration programme, Accelerate PG. As a consequence, on 10 January 2024, the Group entered into collective consultation with employees in Hull, United Kingdom, regarding a potential site closure and possible collective redundancy. 

Purmo Group has on 13 May 2024 completed the consultation process with employee representatives. Following the completion of the process, the company will proceed with the closure of the Hull plant, which will unfortunately result in the termination of employment of 35 employees. 

Purmo Group Hull employs 35 people in the manufacturing of low surface-temperature radiators, fan convectors and other components. The production of these products will be relocated to the Gateshead and Birtley plants in the United Kingdom. 

The closure of the radiator manufacturing and the termination of the employment contracts will incur approximately EUR 2.5 million in one-off costs which will be recognised in the second quarter of 2024. The relocation of manufacturing, including removal, transport and installation of equipment, to Gateshead and Birtley will generate approximately EUR 1.0 million in capital expenditure, impacting the cash flow for the Group. 

According to the plan, production in Hull will cease by the end of the second quarter of 2024.
