Very Strange Indeed....
I live just down the road from this plant, and have many relatives and friends working there.
Seagate got the plant for nothing, and have received lots of grants in addition, Since then, more public investment has gone into specialist drainage systems, and access roads in and around the plant.
They state that they will save £15m per annum by moving to Malaysia, which to my mind is very small beer compared to there global revenue. In a rural area of unemployment such as here, this will mean a lot of people on the dole for a long time, costing probably much in excess of the abovementioned £15m pa.
So we, the tax payers, again pick up the tab, one way or another, for the fat cats!
