Dozens of jobs will be lost at a business in Swindon after the decision was made to close one of its two factories in the town.

Torin-Sifan is cutting the size of its workforce in the town by shutting its facility at Pagoda Park in Westmead.

The firm manufactures energy-efficient air movement products and trades across the world.

A source who wished to remain anonymous told the Adver 42 roles are due to be made redundant by the end of August and that more than 20 temporary staff are due to leave by the end of this month.

In addition, the source claims the Westmead facility will cease its operations immediately despite the company investing more than £2m there in 2015.

The company confirmed that jobs would be lost and that focus would be turned to its Greenbridge base on Drakes Way.

Commercial director Gareth Cook said: “Unfortunately due to a slowdown in new building housing we have been experiencing reduced demand for our motorised impellers.

“We have therefore made the difficult decision to consolidate all our operational and production activities into our Greenbridge site, which unfortunately will result in a reduction of 42 roles across the organisation.

“However, in parallel, we plan to invest in the Greenbridge facility which we are committed to for the long term.”
