Operation Devro closes one of its Lanarkshire factories
Devro said it intends to increase manufacturing at its other North Lanarkshire site in Moodiesburn, which recently received a £ 2 mill. investment. It said the closure was in response to changing consumer trends and was "part of Devro's drive to achieve a fully integrated global business".
Chief executive Rutger Helbing said: "Scotland will remain strategically important to Devro's global operations. However, the collagen market is evolving and we must look at how we manage our business and stay competitive."
