Electric Thermal Solutions Business Update
Spirax-Sarco Engineering plc, the multi-national thermal energy management and niche pumping specialist, provides an update regarding the loss-making Chromalox manufacturing facility in Soissons, France, which is part of the Group's Electric Thermal Solutions Business.
We have today commenced a consultation with trade unions regarding the financial underperformance of the Soissons facility and its consequences, including potential closure of the site.
Our team's immediate focus is to support our 61 colleagues affected by the consultation at this uncertain time and to minimise the impact on our customers.
Electric Thermal Solutions remains fully committed to its customers in the region. This consultation has no impact on any other Group facility in Europe or elsewhere. Our full year guidance for 2022 remains unchanged.
