A High Wycombe manufacturing plant has been closed - with the owners citing disruption from Brexit as the reason for the closure.

Senju Metal Industry Co employed 22 people at the plant in High Wycombe but closed its doors as a result of ‘uncertainty and volatility in the market’ according to company accounts.

In the document, the business said “The decision by the UK to leave the EU (“Brexit”) created uncertainty and volatility in the market.

“As a direct result of pressure from European customers it was decided after the year-end to move all production to Senju Manufacturing Europe SRO, a fellow group company in the Czech Republic.”

In 2018, the company had revenues of over £20m last year.

High Wycombe MP Steve Baker said: "The Government’s number one priority is to ensure businesses have the help they need to be ready for Brexit and take advantage of the opportunities beyond.

"I am sorry if the Japanese directors of Senju have decided to relocate their business to the Czech Republic, and any employees affected by this move will quickly find new employment."

Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Wycombe Toni Brodelle said: “The damage being inflicted by Steve Baker and this hard-line Conservative Government on our local employers is real.

“If Wycombe-based companies are made less competitive due to crashing out of the EU, we are going to see many more job losses within our community, with more families going through real hardship.

“I am consistently out meeting constituents and I have to ask how Steve Baker would answer to local people losing their jobs. His relentless pursuit of a damaging hard Brexit policy at all costs, as well as the mess it is causing for our community and our nation can no longer be ignored.

“I really feel for the workers and their families and hope they receive the support required to find alternative employment.”
