Imperial Tobacco has outlined plans to close factories in Nottingham, UK and Nantes, France. As many as 900 workers may lose their jobs at the two factories. The production will be transferred to two Polish plants, one at Tarnowo Podgorne near Poznan, and the second in Radom. The group is the fourth biggest cigarette producer on the international market, with brands such as Gauloises Blondes and Lambert and Butler. The trade unions told the BBC that the company made 3.18 billion pounds in profits in 2014, and that the shift to ‘Eastern Europe’ was solely to make even more money.
