Motion text

That this House notes with deep concern the actions by Siemens plc in planning to close the highly profitable longstanding British manufacturer Trench (UK) Ltd(formerly The Bushing Company) in Hebburn, Tyne and Wear, in September 2012 and taking its full order book to its plants in Germany, France and China; further notes that Trench (UK), which has 96 employees, produces state-of-the-art high voltage electrical products called bushings, which are fundamental to the supply of electricity in the UK through the National Grid network; acknowledges that Trench (UK) is a world leader in this field and that this expertise will be lost from the UK by its closure; and calls on Siemens plc to reconsider this decision.
