The board of slaughterhouse giant Danish Crown has decided to move its Faaborg plant to one of its Tulip production areas in Cornwall, England.

The company revealed in January of this year that it intended to layoff nearly 500 employees at the facility in the town on Funen and transfer production to its facilities in either Poland, Germany or England.

“The decision makes it possible to begin the move, which includes investing in the factory in England and moving  equipment,” Jesper Friis, the head of Danish Crown Pork, said in a press release. “We’ll also be launching the social plans as the employees here are released.”

Regional support
Tulip, which is owned by the Danish Crown Group, has 17 facilities in England. A number of them are located in the southeastern county of Cornwall. The Faaborg unit will be moving to the town of Bugle.

Because the Bugle plant will be located in an area that struggles to retain jobs in England, the regional development fund has chosen to support the factory there, as well as two other Tulip factories, to the tune of nearly 45 million kroner.

Production in Faaborg is expected to shut down completely by the first half of 2016, while 250 new jobs are expected to be generated in England.
