CONSERVATORY roof manufacturer Ultraframe has announced the closure of its Newton Abbot factory on the Heathfield Industrial Estate.
The factory, which employs 47 full and part time staff, will close at the end of this year.
A statement from the company said the entire production of the company’s Quantal aluminium roof system will be relocated to Ultraframe’s main production facility in Clitheroe, Lancashire.
Ultraframe acquired Quantal in May 2012.
Andy Crowe, Ultraframe Operations Director, said: "The future success of the brand is best served by utilising the greater resources, services and complementary products available from our Clitheroe factory.
"We have not taken this decision lightly and we are now entering into a consultation period with the team at Newton Abbot.”
