Comment from Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey on Closure of Michelin
05 November 2015
After the news of Michelin closing its factory in 2018, the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Thomas Hogg said, “My thoughts are with the employees and their families, who are affected due to the closure of the Michelin factory in Ballymena. This leads on from the announcement of the closure of the JTI factory last year and will affect a large number of employees who are residents of our Borough.
It is a very sad situation and extremely disappointing however I can only be hopeful that as the business is continuing to trade until 2018, those affected will be able to explore other options available to them.”
