Building supplier Cemex has stated that its cement plant at South Ferriby could be mothballed by the end of this year.
Employees at the Lincolnshire base would be made redundant if the closure plans do go ahead.
Following an analysis of the firm’s European cement supply chain, the company said Covid 19 has not influenced the decision.
Other Cemex plants in the UK will remain open and customers will still be supplied, the company stated.
Cement wagon drivers at the plant are not immediately impacted but the intention is to “review the optimal haulage provision”, Cemex said.
“Commitments to the local community will be maintained, including the agreement to continue supplying clay from the quarry to the Environment Agency flood protection scheme; clay will continue to be moved for this until project completion.”
